Gardaí said that the protest, which lasted a number of hours, was entirely peaceful and there were no arrests.

It is not known if Burton was at home at the time.

Protests have been held outside the houses of a number of members of cabinet.

Last month, a group of former aviation workers held a protest outside Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe’s home.

The Tánaiste had no comment today.

Is it fair to protest outside politicians’ family homes?
