The group behind the weekend’s violent anti-lockdown protests are planning another event on St Patrick’s Day.

A senior source said gardaí were concerned Saturday’s event, protesting against Covid-19 prevention measures, was just the first, ahead of a March 17 protest and another planned for March 20.
