Commuters in Dublin face travel disruption this morning, as a tractor protest by beef farmers continues.
Hundreds of demonstrators descended on the capital yesterday, with many sleeping in their tractors overnight.
Gardaí have closed Kildare Street, Molesworth Street, and parts of Merrion Square and St. Stephen's Green until the protest is over.
Farmers say they remain defiant in their fight to get better prices for their cattle.
They handed a submission in to the Taoiseach’s office last night and are hopeful of a response today.
One farmer from East Mayo told Midwest News this morning that the feeling on the ground is that they are going to wait in the capital until they get a reply from Leo Varadkar.
