This afternoon.

Further to Saturday’s shenanigans

Via Irish Times:

Gardaí have identified a group who launched fireworks at officers during violent scenes on Dublin’s Grafton Street on Saturday and expect to make arrests shortly.

The group comprises males from the Monkstown/Dún Laoghaire area who have a history of engaging in anti-social behaviour.

They are a bunch of thugs who have terrorised Monkstown Farm for years. They are organised in a sense that they all work together and are into all sorts of stuff. But mainly just thugs,” a source said.

Gardaí have clear footage and images of the group, including of them preparing the firework to be fired during a mid-afternoon stand-off between gardaí and anti-lockdown protesters.

Hot Eight?

Saturday: Fireworks

Via Tallaght Neignourhood Watch:

This shocking incident happened in Dublin City Centre where a young male put a firework down the back of a young female.

This could have had a fatal result on that young girl. At best she is going to be left with 3rd degree burns and hearing problems, not to mention the mental trauma.

Can we all take a minute to speak to our kids on the run up to Halloween and what they might think is funny, may cause serious injury to others or themselves.

I’ve seen lately people aiming fireworks into crowds of people and onto the buses and luas. This needs to stop. Play your part and speak to your kids please.
