I posted this earlier but in the wrong forum.
On breakingnews now.
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....
Where's that quote from? Doesn't look like something official in the slightest.
First sentence and last are opinion, middle bit essentially a rewrite of what was on breakingnews.ie and eircom.net's breaking news.
Truly tragic that kids today are showing such racist attitudes
So black teens against white teens, is this the start of something to come in this country..
Christ, that's depressing.
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.
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.
A group of black lads fighting with a group of native Irish lads. What else would you call it?
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.
