Hundreds are expected to descend on Dublin's O'Connell Street tomorrow morning while the controversial political figure is in Easons signing copies of his recently published memoirs.

Before that a handful of demonstrators will show up outside RTE's Montrose studios in Donnybrook, Dublin 4 tonight in anticipation of his expected appearance on 'The Late Late Show'.

International uproar over Mr Blair's actions over the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has led to British website,, offering a reward of £3,100 (€3,720) to the next person that attempts a citizen's arrest of the politician.
