A protest will be held this lunchtime in Co. Meath against Scientologists turning a nursing home into a drug rehab centre.

The Narconon facility, in Ballivor, will use controversial methods for drug rehabilitation.

The local council have already given planning permission to the 56 bedroom facility.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has warned that drug rehab services should only be provided by qualified professionals.

It comes after Scientology opened a centre in the Firhouse area of Dublin last year.
