Gardai warn that College Green now closed to public

Dublin’s College Green has been closed off to the public after thousands of Barack Obama fans filled the streets ahead of his public address.

Gardai have warned fans that there is no more room at the Green and, for safety reasons, it has been closed off access to all but emergency services.

President Obama, who over-ran his time to greet enthusiastic Moneygall crowds, was expected to arrive late.
