This morning.

Dawson Street, Dublin 2

Leo Diarmuid Grey tweetz:

Myself and my boyfriend were victims [this morning] to a homophobic incident on Nassau/Dawson street [Dublin 2]

Some chap got really aggressive in passing with us and call us faggots etc.

We didn’t react, and kept on to Dawson Luas trying to go home.

When we got to the stop , we turned around and saw the guy had got some of his friends with him and were following us.

I am very much used to these types of incidents, but seeing a group of them really startled us.

We quickly went into Tower Records on Dawson Street but were afraid they were going to come in after us, so we asked a member of staff could she check for us.

She politely obliged, and soon the security guard was helping us too.

He told us when it was safe to go outside And how to report this incident. He was extremely helpful and reassuring.  It’s really hard to feel safe immediately after an incident like this, but he really tried his best.

I would love it if we showed some appreciation to the staff there. God knows what could’ve happened

We’ve all seen from the news articles and from friends of friends that homophobic abuse has been increasing lately, with a lack of interference from An Garda Síochána,. So I really want to spread love and gratitude to Tower Records Dublin

In fairness.

Smoke appearing to emerge from Tower Records, Wicklow Street, Dublin, at 1am.

UPDATE: Staff members have been in touch to say all is well and they are “not burning”. They suggest the smoke may be “body heat” from the adjoining nightclub. We have publicly apologised for the blunder and have promised to buy a ‘record’ at the store over  the weekend.

Thanks Oisin Nolan
