Protestors formed human barricades near the Dame Street area yesterday evening, which stopped cars and vans from parking in cycling lanes.

The cycling campaigners caused huge tailbacks in the city, with many people complaining it took them hours to get home.

The cyclists took to the street at 4.30pm, the top of rush hour in the city, and not many car owners were happy.

According to 98fm, there were a few "heated exchanges" as the 15 protestors stood at a cycle lane on Andrew's Street.

This protest came just as the Irish Road Safety Authority released a new video, showing people what it's like to be a cyclist in the city.

The RSA believe it will encourage drivers to keep a safe distance when passing cyclists.

The cyclists promised to protest again in the next few weeks.
