Latest arrest in connection with Dublin riots brings the number of arrests to 40

A man has been arrested in connection with the riots that took place in Dublin last November.

This brings the total number of arrests made in connection with the unrest to 40.

On Friday, the Garda said it had arrested a man in his twenties in Dublin as part of its investigation into the events of November 23, 2023.

The day after the riots, Gardaí announced that they had arrested 34 people in connection with the riots.

Since then, six more people have been arrested, including the man arrested on Friday.

He was detained at a police station in the Dublin Metropolitan Region under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

The unrest followed a knife attack on children earlier that day that left a five-year-old girl in critical condition.

During the riots, shops were looted and police and public transport vehicles were set on fire.

During the riots, twelve Garda members were injured in attacks, one of whom had to have a toe amputated.

An Garda Síochána has appealed to anyone with information relating to the events of 23 November to contact the Garda Investigations Team at Store Street Garda Station on 01 666 8000, the Garda Confidential Hotline on 1800 666111 or any Garda station.
