Protests likely to cause disruption across the Irish domestic trucking industry

Ireland domestic trucking protests: Disruption expected as protesters focus on fuel prices and carbon tax

The Irish Truckers and Haulage Association has been lobbying for a reduction in fuel prices since November 2021. With protests having brought Dublin to a standstill then, the public and businesses in and around Dublin are preparing for severe delays on domestic road freight in Ireland as the People Of Ireland Against Fuel Prices Protest Group prepares for another protest announced to commence on Monday, 11th April.

The group has published 6 demands, such as a cap on petrol, diesel, and green diesel, and for the carbon tax to be scrapped. It has advised to expect for the protest to last a week or until all demands have been met. This will likely cause significant disruption to the flow of goods and domestic road transport through Dublin and beyond.
