The president had enjoyed what was deemed a PR success in London, when he visited the Royal family but his visit to Ireland was not so successful due to his immediately relating the Mexican wall to Ireland’s concerns about a border re-emergence with the triggering of Brexit.

Extinction Rebellion Clare, Futureproof Clare, the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Gaza Action Ireland, the Irish War Movement, and others, took part in the protest.
