A man has been hospitalised following an incident outside Leinster House this afternoon.
The emergency services were called after the man, believed to be in his thirties, was found in a distressed state outside the gates on Kildare Street.
Onlookers raised the alarm amid fears for the man’s safety.
He was later rushed to hospital where he is being treated.
Independent TD Finian McGrath was one of a number of individuals who came to the man’s assistance.
“He appeared to be very much in pain. Hopefully he receives the treatment he needs,” Mr McGrath said.
