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.
