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.

Saturday: Fireworks

This morning.

Via The Sunday Times:

According to one estimate, 12 per cent of retail units on Grafton Street, one of the country’s busiest shopping locations before the pandemic, are vacant. Department store Debenhams, which closed last year, has left nearly one million sq ft of empty retail space across Ireland, according to Neil Bannon of commercial property consultancy Bannon.

All told, it is possible that the equivalent square footage of Dundrum Town Centre will have been vacated by the fashion retail crash.”
