A group of anti-war protestors in Dublin have greeted former British Prime Minister Tony Blair with a barrage of eggs and, no doubt to remind him of Iraq, shoes.

Blair was attending the first stop of his book signings tour for his autobiography, A Journey.

The incident occurred at Easons on O'Connell Street in Dublin, where over 300 people had gathered to get a signed copy of the book.

Despite the best efforts of the protestors, none of the missiles hit their intended target. The protestors also tried to knock down the security barrier protecting Blair, but were held at bay by the police.
