What is the deal with the riots between Republican Sinn Fein and the Gardaí. If there was anything that the likes of Paisley needed to futher say they would not be tolerated in a United Ireland this is it.
Update. Newstalk.ie report that there is about 600 people rioting. They have blocked O'Connell street. They are using the rubble from the building site to throw.And that the GardaÃ don't think the Love ulster Parade will go ahead.
Update: BBC report.

Update: Backstreet Drivers have some Photos. There are definite signs this has been pre-planed. People don't bring petrol into town for peaceful protestors. Update: Newstalk report Charlie Bird was seen with his head bleeding
I would say that the attack on the PDs office. Shows that McDowell is getting to the republican movement.
Update: Politians Condemn it. Sinn Fein Sean Crowe says "some people allowed themselves to be provoked by the 'Love Ulster' rally". Seems to me that he is saying that they let themselves fall for a loyalist trap. Rather then saying that is unacceptable for people's right to protest being violated.
Update: A rioter in Dublin said that he was fighting for his country. Des Dalton VP Republican Sinn Fein. Says that RSF are not participating in the riot. Does not condomn it. Says that the Political establishment is out of touch. Saying the rioters are ordinary Dubliners. Who don't like the sectarian Love ulster parade.
Update: 100 people have charged into Jervis Street Shopping centre.
Why are RTE radio not covering this. All these people who have been caught in the riot. Could have been able to leave the city if they had been informed. But RTE the public service broadcaster is having sports news how is that public service.
