A Fallen Friend


Friday evening.

East Wall Dublin.

A gathering of teenagers commemorate Josh Dunne, who was fatally stabbed last week during an altercation on East Wall Road. Many of the teenagers at the gathering arrived on bicycles, and wore t-shirts featuring Josh.

          Not really my point, Charger. My point is not political or geographical. I believe this kid would still be alive if the schools had remained open. For some, it’s the only structure in their lives.

          Just, BTW, would you know how many sixteen-year-olds have died *from* Covid in Ireland?

    Are you allowed to report that second picture, considering Section 252 of the Children Act 2001 which has automatic reporting restrictions in the case of ‘any proceedings for an offence against a child’?

      1. TessFlynn

        Under the act you are not even allowed to report the child’s name once someone has been charged.

    RIP and God help that lads family….The keystone cops management really need to up their game in the area

    fair play to the yoots for showing support like that, although that’s a shocking way to treat your bike.

      I’ve noticed they all do that now – assume the pedal on the kerb balancing manoeuvre is a lost skill

      From a legal perspective, I’m not sure all those bikes could be described as *their* bikes.
      Having involuntarily contributed to the East Wall Children’s Bicycle Foundation after locking my bike in Connolly Station a few years ago, I’m glad I’m doing my part for the inner city green initiative.

    Great, another fatal incident that shouldnt have happened if everyone was actually trying to curb the virus (they shouldnt have been in the street in groups) very sad outcome for that young lad and now…. more gathering. Thickos, getting real fed up with this stuf now.

      I was wondering too how they came to be out and about for the original row to kick off. A friend has kids the same age and they haven’t been allowed out for weeks.

        Its just sad that it had the consequences it did. Im not excusing the incident one bit but when I see pictures like this, I just despair. We will be still in lockdown by Christmas at this rate.

          It’s ok Mick

          The virus knows that they are gathering for a good cause and will leave them alone – and their grannies.

    Where’s the social distancing and the confirmatory to group numbers under CV 19 regulations
