A number of people are occupying the head offices of the Anglo-Irish Bank in central Dublin.

Irish police, who are at the scene, said there are about ten protestors at the offices in St Stephen's Green with some inside the building.

The socialist, republican party Eirigi said six of its members were taking part in the protest.

Anglo-Irish, which lost 12.7bn euros last year, has been a high-profile casualty of the Irish banking crisis.

Eirigi, which was founded in 2006 but only became a registered political party this year, is opposed to Sinn Fein's participation in the Northern Ireland executive.
