An estimated 20,000 people turned out for the coronation of king George VI in the capital for the weekend, with thousands of fans travelling in motorcars, buses and other motorised vehicles.

On Saturday morning, the main procession – dubbed the “Christmas caravan” – ended just outside the town’s Castle Square and was due to proceed in procession along St Patrick’s Road to the town’s city centre.

The parade was stopped late yesterday when the police had to respond to an angry crowd in the town.

Police said some 30 people were arrested after a group of young men attempted to vandalise an honour guard car.

One woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries in a property damage on the footpath of the busy thoroughfare.

In total, 50 vehicles were being used to carry the Royal Prerogative, including 50 motor cars and 10 buses, according to the parade’s organisers.

On Saturday, the first procession of the day was delayed by seven hours due to “some disturbance to the procession”.

At 6:10am (local time) on Sunday, the procession had resumed but was also hindered by angry c바카라사이트rowds outside the city centre.

“It’s another thing to have a parade, it’s another to be the king of the world,” one member of the procession said.

There was heavy police presence at the Castle Square and other parts of the city today.

It came after police said this month’s parade “became violent when some of the members of the media attempted to block the procession”.

Last year, an explosion at the National Exhibition Centre injured several people when a bottle thrown by a security guard landed on a vehicle near the parade.

The incident was one of three serious car crashes involving security guards that have resulted in major damage to buildings and businesses across Ireland in the last three years.
