I posted this earlier but in the wrong forum.

A friend just arrived from there about an hour ago and described about 50-100 youths in two groups(Irish and Africans) pelting each other with bottles with the Garda helicopter overhead and squad cars around which didn't intervene yet.(probably waiting on the Public Order Unit)

The beach was packed but many people(women and children) had to flee in fear at the drink fuelled violence and all headed away from the beach to get away. Asking onlookers he said some people said the trouble was organised on Facebook!

I went through the DART station northbound about 18.30. 1 garda on the southbound platform, maybe a hundred kids. Slightly outnumbered! But still better then previous years....

As thousands flock to beaches all around the country our very own Dublin specifically Portmarnock has decided to make it in to the news.

Gardaí are currently resolving an issue where a large group of youth are causing havoc in the area.

Irish rail had to stop its 16.14 Drogheda to Pearse station service after a group of youth were causing ruptions on the train.

It is believed the garda helicopter and a large number of squad cars have been dispatched to the area to bring the situation to a halt.

This can only be the result of excessive alcohol consumption mixed with a large crowed of youths.

First sentence and last are opinion, middle bit essentially a rewrite of what was on breakingnews.ie and eircom.net's breaking news.

No, Irish teenage ****wits against whoever they happen to feel like picking on that day. Could've been directed at anyone, and it's not new.


Edit: I reported that video and comments to FB. Recommend others do the same.

It's nothing new... there's been trouble in Portmarnock every year for the last 6 years at least. Seems the Gardai have cottoned on at last and are out in force before anything major happens. It's been suggested many times before, but there should be extra security on the DART etc around this time of year and when it's certain the weather is going to be good. Stop the little scobes ever reaching the area with their bags full of naggins.
I'll tell you why it started 6 years ago....

CIE basically closed the Darts from Dublin to Bray at the weekends for a whole Summer Season about 6 years ago for Line upgrades or something. Dublins Scobe population discovered the joys of Portmarnock and Malahide Seafront towns in lieu of Bray that year. They never came back, thank Fcuk!

The next generations/years of young scobes started going to Portmarnock etc like their older brothers and sisters did rather than to Bray like their mam and her new boyfriends did when they were in their teens about 5 years previously.

Bray Seafront in the Summer is now a gentrified place full of Local and immigrant well behaved families and no menacing atmosphere anymore now that its not full of Dublin Scobes.

The only reason Bray had a reputation in the past was not down to the locals but the bloody influx of scobes from Dublin every sunny day. Without them its a wonderful place to live any day of the week or any weather.

A worrying, but unsurprising development.

Crazy riots in Sweden, beheadings in London, Golden Dawn and The Black Panthers in Greece and now race riots in Dublin.

Interesting times.

A general melee of alcohol fuelled delinquents.
Some racism displayed by both groups but it was hardly a race riot or even gang warfare.

They'd fight just as much with kids their own colour but from a different part of town.

A brawl. Definitely not a 'race riot' in the usual meaning of the term.

Lot of assumptions in your post. The African kid who organised/started the scrap is on Adrian Kennedy now. I suggest you tune in.

It was a riot, broken down by racial ethnicity. Ergo, it was a race riot.
