The Chief Medical Officer has strongly criticised what he says was a "major open air party" in Dublin City Centre last night.

Large crowds were gathered in the South William Street area drinking and socialising from early evening.

Dr. Tony Holohan says he was "absolutely shocked" by the scenes and that it's not what the country needs given the progress that has been made.

Gardai say the arrests for public order offences were made on South William Street.
