The family at the centre of an eviction controversy in Co. Roscommon earlier this week have called for a peaceful protest tomorrow.

Local farming and public representatives are expected to speak at the protest which is due to begin at noon on Church St in Strokestown.

The protest follows violent clashes earlier in the week on the farm the family was evicted from.

8 security personnel were injured and a number of vehicles burnt out during the incident.

Two members of the family have since moved back into their home.

Earlier today it was confirmed that two men who had been arrested earlier this week in connection with an alleged incident at the property have been released without charge.

The men, aged in their 50s and 60s, were detained at Castlerea Garda station since Wednesday.

A file is being prepared for the DPP.
