Curfew At Portobello Plaza Being Considered

Dublin Lord Mayor Hazel Chu has said that a curfew is being considered for Portobello Plaza.

Chu said that she had proposed a curfew to Gardaí saying: “I proposed a curfew of a certain hour to the Gardaí.”

“It could be 10 o’clock or a little bit earlier, or a little bit later, but in consultation with the residents.”

“It is a residential area, but there is a public plaza there. We would also want to make sure there were proper facilities in place.”

Last weekend the area was closed off to the public with Gardaí on patrol to prevent large crowds from gathering there over the weekend.
