    Saw the video. All I can sag is that I'm sure a hell is going to break lose.

    Video doing the round of a traveler giving a beating to one of local bikers.

    Like something off of shameless.

    Apologies if not related to thread- but it’s a deplorable video.

    I can assume its being taken down online, as I haven,t come across it.

    Spotted that alright, ffs, does anyone give a sh1t about the settled residence at all

    Growing in a local authority housing estate I remember at one point a group of travelers families arrived and set up camp on the outskirts of the estate, a few of the residents went to the council about it the group of traveler families eventually moved on.

    But they caused anti social behavior in the brief time they were there. My thoughts go to the settled residents in Carrickpherish.

    Those bikers will do absolutely nothing. You can be sure of that. Think you are confusing them with some chapter in America!!

    The youngest of them are in their 50s and they don’t exactly look like lads into the MMA!!

    Well I mean, that's not exactly true. Couple of them who would be friends of mine are mid 30s like, but in the overall point I agree. Nothing of note will really happen, a 65 year old man went to do damage with a golf club, a kid and his missus both bearing weapons and shock horror the traveller didn't really care for reputation and handed his ass to him, and then apparently got arrested himself the day after.

    I'd be more concerned if I was someone sharing the video actually, far easier targets for intimidation and reprisal to help ease the swallowing of that bitter pill.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd be willing to bet good money on it very very little will happen in the aftermath.

    But with the whole thing being shared on social media,what are options there.
    Somehow I don’t see the bikers letting this one go,they will only lose respect from the other bike clubs in the country,so this is not the end of it,by any means

    It's disgraceful how badly they're being treated, and now they're gonna sell even more houses there!

    Fine figure of a man. Some moves. Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee.

    Another "well known" family in Waterford might tell you otherwise regarding what the bikers could do. Whatever about the older lads, some of the younger lads who have joined over the last number of years aren't exactly angels. With the Gardai heavily involved in this, I think this will pass without anything further happening, for the time being anyway.

    In fairness if you go up to a guy's house with a golf club you can expect to get a hiding. What was he ****ing thinking.

    Was this the original one or a reaction to it? Fella who who hit him would appear to be carrying a knife shaped object in his hand :eek:

    heard it was to collect someone that had already been assaulted, but he certainly wasnt going there to just have a chat! id imagine various extra extremities already exist with this one, so god knows what the truth is...

    He doesn't live there, he was there on the session. Seriously nasty piece of work, needs to be put away for a long time.

    Looks like that alright. That said, sounds like the fields are being closed off due to the lads burning gorse and stuff. I'd say that's the travellers alright.
