Truckers and hauliers in Dublin are blocking Dublin Port in a bid to highlight their frustration at rising fuel prices. A small number of truckers have gathered at the port entrance, with gardaí also at the scene. Traffic flow is continuing in the area at an alternative entrance. The Facebook page used to organise and generate momentum for the protests has told truckers to converge on the Port from their meeting points and “when you stop, don’t move for the day”.
Traffic disruption is expected in Dublin this morning as a truck drivers’ group that brought widespread gridlock to the capital last month plans another series of convoys to the capital in protest at rising fuel prices.
