Gardai said the protest will impact on traffic from 10am when road closures will come into effect on -
• Kildare Street

• St Stephens Green South
• Merrion Square West/South/East
• Merrion Street Upper.

In addition the following arrangements will apply:
• East bound traffic on Kevin Street will be diverted up New Bride Street
• St Stephens Green North and East will only remain open for public transport from 2pm.
