Protesters try to storm Irish Dail

THOUSANDS of Irish people have taken to the streets to protest at the bailout of the banks and at the jobs crisis in Ireland.

There were some scuffles at the Daíl, the parliament builing, where people tried to get in.

Reported Irish Indymedia: "It's worth noting that one of those who was batoned by the cops at the demo last night was a 61 year old retired midwife. She wasn't endangering the cops but she was hit on the head with a baton."
