Well, no, not really. There are five anti-war protesters walking around this comfortable south Dublin suburb with placards and handing out leaflets. They don’t look very dangerous. But there are at least 10 gardai (policemen) standing around, apparently watching them. Oddly enough, the Ranelagh traffic camera seems not to be working, even though all the other traffic cameras for the city appear to be operating fine (see menu at the top of AA Roadwatch site). It’s a funny old world.
