Major Delays Expected As Haulier Protest Travels To Dublin


Hauilers are making their way to Kildare Street in Dublin to protest against rising fuel costs.

They say many smaller operators are at risk of going out of business and are demanding the Government act.

Significant disruption is expected into the city this morning, and in and around the Dail later, as trucks start to park up.

Sean from Carlow is part of the protest and he says he understands the protest will cause frustration for some commuters.

"I saw a lot of comments on social media saying they've medical appointments and I feel sorry for them."

"But the way I look at it is, if we don't do this,  there'll be a lot more people needing medical appointments because of their mental health."

"People won't have jobs or food or be able to provide for their families."

Hauliers at the M1 Lusk/Rush told our reporters they don't plan on "blocking up town too much".

They said the protest will last "a couple of hours" or "until [the Government] see sense".
