Footage of the protest was shared on the Extinction Rebellion Ireland Facebook page.

The footage was accompanied by a comment from one of the vandals, who said: ‘I am targeting the Department of Foreign Affairs because the climate crisis is a global issue which we need to come together to solve.

‘Ireland is on the UN Security Council. We have an opportunity to be leaders in climate action and justice.a sign on the side of a building: Footage of the protest was shared on the Extinction Rebellion Ireland Facebook page.

‘Our Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney said that Ireland would be a voice for young people, women and the least developed countries. How is that anything more than empty promises given the actions of our government?’
