This morning 150 people have been blockading the bridge on the Bangor road despite the appaling weather. Constuction traffic has been delayed for 15 minutes.

Before being forcibly removed from the bridge the protestors got up and started walking slowly towards the terminal site. At this stage the cops started getting rough and trampelled one woman on the ground.

At the time of posting, the protestors are using divertionary tactics, splitting up and reforming again along the road.

The cops are becoming increasingly confused and frustrated.

There is an urgent call out in place for people to get over to Erris to support the blockades. For those in Dublin who can't make it, there will be a large protest at Corrib House on the corner of Leeson Street (at the canal end) at 13.00 this afternoon.
