A ‘SLOW DRIVE’ by some 30 taxi drivers brought traffic in Dublin to a near stand-still on Tuesday, prompting one business group to call for such demonstrations to be kept away from certain parts of Dublin City Centre.
Retailers lost up to 60 per cent of their trade on the day of the last big Irish Water protest, a spokesperson for the Dublin Chamber of Commerce said.
The group didn’t have a hard and fast view on where protests should happen, he said — but protests should take place in a way that keeps disruption to a minimum.
