Irish police say they have arrested 11 people protesting in Dublin against restrictive measures imposed across the country as part of an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

About a hundred people demonstrated in central Dublin on Thursday night under a banner reading “End Restraint”, prompting police in riot gear and specially trained dogs to intervene.

According to a police representative, the protesters were informed that they were violating the measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and “were called to disperse”, but 11 of them were arrested “after incidents that disrupted public order” in the center of the Irish capital.

Hoping to “celebrate Christmas properly,” as Prime Minister Michal Martin said, Ireland has taken the toughest measures in Europe. They came into force at midnight the day before yesterday: the whole population is again restricted for six weeks, the shops whose operation is not considered absolutely necessary have closed, but the schools will remain open.
