Striking bricklayers at a site in Kishoge, west Dublin are to continue their picket, after the High Court ruled that they were entitled to maintain the protest. However, they have agreed to limit the number of picketers, and to ensure that all future picketing will be lawful. The strike centres on allegations of low pay and irregular subcontracting which have been denied by the company JJ Rhatigan. The company had taken legal proceedings in a bid to halt the pickets, which brought the site of a Department of Education-funded school building to a standstill.
