"Vile On So Many Levels" - TDs Condemn Protest At Tániste's Home


A protest outside the Tanaiste’s home in Dublin has been described as ‘vile on so many levels’.

Government TDs and members of the opposition have condemned the demonstration, which took place outside Leo Varadkar's home in Dublin 8 yesterday.

Gardaí were called to the protest at around 1pm.

In a widely circulated video on social media, homophobic language can be heard at the event.

Fine Gael TD Neale Richmond says it wasn’t a protest but ‘a vile act of intimidation’.

The Dublin Rathdown TD says society needs to reflect "on how we talk to each other and the way we condemn out politicians".

He said yesterday's scenes are "truly worrying".

"We need to remember our words have consequences."
