There is a large garda presence outside a shop in Co Wexford this morning where a repossession order is being carried out.

Goods are currently being removed from Corrigan’s Londis in Kilmuckridge by a number of security personnel and loaded on to trucks.

The operation began at 5am this morning and is expected to continue until midday.

A number of anti-eviction groups are protesting against the repossession order and a source told Independent.ie that the high garda presence is to ensure there are no breaches of the peace.

Gardaí tried to repossess the shop last October with KTech Security following the issue of a court order.

Their efforts were subsequently thwarted as they were outnumbered by a large crowd of ant-eviction protesters who reclaimed the supermarket.

A source said gardaí were determined to ensure this didn't happen again and have cordoned off the entire shop while the goods are removed from the supermarket.

A number of locals have huddled around the shop and are watching on as the repossession is carried out.
