VETERAN RTE reporter Ciaran Mullooly had a live link on the RTE news disrupted by water protesters this evening.

The RTE midlands correspondent was reporting live from Athlone on the ongoing flooding deluge.

However towards to end of his report two people carrying signs appeared in the background.

The signs said ‘boycott water charges’.

Back in studio Sharon Ni Bheolain brushed off the incident, telling Mullooly ‘we’ll leave it there so’ due to the disruption.

Her broadcast colleague Bryan Dobson previously had a live report interrupted by protestors.

The news anchor referred to the protesters as 'idiots'.

He was cleared after the BAI received seven complaints on the incident.
