    Default Halloween, "No Go" areas and the Gardai

    Gardai pinpoint ‘no go areas’ for firemen battling Halloween fires tonight - National News - Independent.ie

    The weather is dry this evening in Dublin, so the gardai, through the Indo, are declaring certain bits of Dublin "No-Go" areas.

    The Indo are either just scaremongering, or (based on my experience of west Tallaght) spot on, and the Gardai are unable to police tonight.

    Not sure what the solution here is, but water Cannon and dye would be a start...

    Regarding the weather, a Garda I knew years ago used to pray for torrential rain on Halloween night...

    Oh the joy!

    Buses will stop running early in a lot of places. Another excuse for behaving like animals. Actually I take that back as an insult to our furry friends.

    can we borrow a few psni water cannons and armoured landies?

    go in heavy with riot gear and worry about the consequences tomorrow...we can't allow gangs etc to run feral for even one night.

    So I have to cycle from Sheriff St. up the North Circular and out through Finglas to get home this evening...

    I hope to report back later on my safe arrival home , failing that I'll probably have a great collection of fireworks and rocks/bottles

    UPDATE:One rock and a couple of bangers, no bottles (that were close enough to notice), on the whole a quiet Halloween

    So many lamp posts, so little rope.

    I suppose the conclusion is that certain sections of society need to let off a little steam every now and then. I'm inclined to agree.

    Best of luck

    Not sure giving Gardai a free reign tonight is the answer.

    Aside from the violence of the night their is underage drinking to think about aswell. I used to drink when I was underage but I would never drink Halloween night, far too dangerous its one of those nights of the year like paddys day were youth goes savage. Not to mention the amount of Casual sex that it is to come as the night goes on. Plenty of young girls go to nightclubs dressing like whores. I swear to god we have a generation of whores and drug addicts and nights like these expose that. Luckily however their has been very little fireworks heard which may be a sign of easiness or calm before the storm........

    Im from the quiet enough part of Finglas/Glasnevin. I would not even contemplate going anywhere near Finglas West or South tonight. Good luck
