PROTESTS AGAINST CUTS to home help and home care have taken place in Dublin tonight.

This marks the second night in a row that protests have taken place outside Government Buildings.

The Leaders Alliance group had staged a protest yesterday against the proposed cuts to personal assistants.

It was announced last night that cuts to this service would no longer be made. Despite this, their protest continued throughout the night until they received confirmation of it in writing earlier today.

Tonight’s protest comprised of members of the public, the newly formed Care Community Action Group and People Before Profit.
