Thirteen people were brought before Dublin District Court last night, charged in connection with protests in Dublin city centre yesterday afternoon.
The 12 men and one woman were brought before a special sitting of the court and charged with breaches of the Public Order Act.
Some of the defendants were charged with multiple breaches of the Act while some face just one charge.
The offences before the court included threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour, failing to comply with the direction of a garda, obstructing a garda and giving a false name or address.
No one, as yet, has been charged in relation to the firing of fireworks at Gardai.
The offences were alleged to have taken place in various locations in the city centre, including Grafton Street and O’Connell street.
The youngest defendants were two 19-year-old men.
The oldest was 59-year-old Fergus Cahill from Shankill in Co Dublin, whose 25-year-old son, Caoilte, was also before the court, with both facing three public order charges each.
The defendants also included 26-year-old twin brothers.
Those before the court also had addresses in Crumlin, Drimnagh, the south and north city centre and Finglas.
One man was homeless, some are not working and others work in various roles such as wheel technician and factory workers.
Six of the 13 wore masks during their appearance in court.
Judge Michael Walsh granted bail to all of the defendants on conditions, including directing that they abide by Covid-19 regulations, that they stay within their 5km areas and that they do not participate in any unlawful protests.
The judge said the court recognised the right of people to protest but unlawful assembly for an unlawful purpose would not be tolerated.
He granted bail to all of the defendants, most of them on condition that they lodge €100 in cash in court.
They will all be back before Cloverhill District Court next week.
It is understood the DPP is considering whether more serious charges should be preferred against any of the defendants.
Gardaí say seven others were charged with offences and released on station bail.
Three juveniles were released and will be considered for inclusion in the Juvenile Diversion Programme.
All of the defendants will be back before the court next week, most of them on 5 March, via video link at Cloverhill District Court.
