Gardai say they have no role in permitting or authorising protest marches during Covid-19 restrictions.
They issued the statement after a large crowd gathered in Dublin City Centre yesterday afternoon for an anti-vaccine rally.
Up to 2,000 people took to the streets of Dublin yesterday protesting about Covid passports, vaccines and ongoing restrictions.
They initially gathered at the Customs House, before marching along O'Connell St. and on to Government Buildings on Merrion Row.
There from a stage the large, mostly unmasked crowd, listened to speeches and music.
In a statement issued last night Gardai said the only law broken was by the people who organised the event.
The protest passed off peacefully.
By contrast similar rallys in Australia and France turned violent.
