Things get heated at the protest in Dublin yesterday

There were more angry scenes as water meter installers attempted to get to work in the Maryland area of Dublin’s south inner city yesterday.

In this incident, which occurred on Eugene Street, locals jostled with installers who had turned up with a garda presence yesterday afternoon.

People put their feet and bodies in the way of drills to prevent the work from taking place.

The water meters were not installed and the workmen left the scene.
