Irish Water Protest (2015)
Back in September, Dublin residents were protesting the installation of water meters and the formation of Irish Water. During that time the protests themselves were quite small. Around a 100 people or so at times. When I arrived back in Dublin a couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a protest in the city center. To my surprise I saw at least a couple thousand people, if not more, chanting about burning their bills and the un-willingness to pay Irish Water.
