Republic of Ireland: Protesters make themselves heard during royal visit

Not everyone was happy for Britain's Queen Elizabeth to make her historic visit to the Irish Republic. Although not large in number, a rally organised by Republican nationalists ended in several clashes with police.

About half a hour before the Queen was due to lay a wreath at the Garden of Remembrance, a few blocks away protesters tried to kick their way through security barricades.

But if Queen Elizabeth and the Irish President Mary McAleese could hear the demonstrators neither showed it.
