Counter protest held outside acclaimed Dublin bar to cover up graphic imagery displayed to the public

THE ICBR were challenged when they set up a protest just off Capel Street in Dublin's city centre.

The Irish Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform have made a series of protests against the upcoming abortion referendum - appearing at universities including DCU, DIT and Maynooth to try and deter the masses from voting yes in May's referendum to repeal the eighth amendment.

The group had another protest planned in city centre, carrying banners which display extremely graphic images of 'abortion photography'.

Upon arrival, near to Pantibar belonging to Rory O'Neill, otherwise known as drag queen Panti Bliss the group were met with a neutral stance from Mr O'Neill.

In a viral Facebook post, Mr O'Neill detailed how the Gardaí arrived at the scene following complaints received regarding the offensive nature of the images but also his discovery of a counter-protest.

The group Radical Queers Resist turned up to block the insensitive images being shown to women, men and children and protected the eyes of the public from the images displayed.

The group will continue to counter protest in the run up to the referendum and today have staged another one outside The George on Dublin's George's Street.
