7 December 2010 was the day the Irish economy finally caved in to the IMF. Protests surrounded the Irish parliament all day as the governemnt agreed to the all too familiar conditions were set on public sector, health and welfare cuts and reductions to the minimum working wage.

2010 was a year that saw protests grip Dublin. In May protestors attempted to storm the Dail . November, riot police were deployed to clear the streets of student protestors after government buildings were occupied. By the end of that month 100,000 people marched in opposition to the IMF.
