Laura Broxson, founder of the National Animal Rights Association (NARA), led the "high-profile liberation".

She explained how she believes it's time we started thinking about lobsters feelings - they're sensitive crustaceans, don't you know.

"You wouldn't throw a dog into a pot of boiling water would you?" Broxson asked.

"This was a matter of life and death for those lobsters. They feel fear, they feel pain. We had to get in there and free them."

With the lobsters safely stowed in plastic bags, the liberation group headed to Clontarf where they released the lucky nine into the sea.

"We were all in floods of tears as they paddled away," she said.

"Hopefully others around the country will be inspired to stage similar shellfish liberations."

Better hold on to your scampi.

Question: Who knew that shot of Enda Kenny wearing bulky Oculus Rift glasses would come back to haunt him? Answer: everybody.

'The Guardian' used the aforementioned picture of our Taoiseach in an article titled 'Disappointing technology - when did the future get so ugly?'

Unfortunately, I very much doubt that this will undermine Enda's penchant for cheesy photo calls.
