Gardaí have arrested 14 people, including five juveniles, in relation to a number of public order offences in Dublin city centre last night.

Gardaí were struck with glass bottles and other missiles which resulted in one garda officer being injured and a patrol car sustaining damage.

Gardaí stated that there were large organised groups at a number of locations in Dublin’s south city centre last night, which included St Stephen’s Green, South William Street and Temple Bar Square.

A large number of gardaí were on patrol in the areas and dealt with the large groups of people.

Gardaí were attacked with glass bottles while trying to deal with the groups. The injured garda officer received hospital treatment after sustaining an injury to his leg.

The Public Order Unit remained in the city centre until 3am. The 14 people who were arrested are being detained at Pearse Street and Kevin Street garda stations.

According to gardaí, six of the 14 people were charged with public order offences and released while two others received the adult caution.

One of them was released pending a summons for public order offences. The five juveniles were released and referred to the Juvenile Liaison Officer.

Gardaí stated that they will continue to manage and patrol crowds that congregate on public streets or in public spaces.

Superintendent Liam Geraghty of the Garda Press Office stated that people should abide by the health guidelines by avoiding crowded places and observing social distancing.
