Taxi Drivers Protest In Dublin For Better Pandemic Supports

Taxi drivers have been protesting in Dublin city centre calling for more supports for the industry.

They want a financial support package, as well as cheaper insurance premiums and more access to bus lanes.

Drivers came from across the country, with several streets in the city blocked off during the protest.

Merrion Square has re-opened and delays in the area are easing.

Jim Waldron of the National Private Hire Taxi Association says drivers are struggling with the impact of the pandemic
