THREE PEOPLE ARRESTED during clashes outside the Convention Centre in Dublin yesterday are to appear before a Dublin court today.

The three people were arrested yesterday for public order offences and have now been charged by gardaí at Store Street.

The Convention Centre is currently hosting the European People’s Party congress.

The trio consists of two males, aged 42 and age unknown, and a female, aged 22.

They are due to appear at the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.

Yesterday saw a small number of anti-austerity protestors gather outside the Convention Center, with a group of up to 200 people joining them in the evening time.

Four gardaí were injured during the scuffles, but remained on duty.

The congress comes to a close this evening.
