    Default African and Irish Youngsters Brawl at Portmarnock Beach

    Gardaí are trying to bring order to the Dublin seaside resort of Portmarnock this evening, after crowds of young people arrived at the town's beach to take advantage of the good weather.

    Gardaí attend Dublin beach as fine weather leads to public disorder | BreakingNews.ie

    There were thousands at the beach today enjoying the sun, but many were forced to flee as between 75-100 Irish and African youths began lobbing glass bottles at each other before fighting erupted. The police chopper hovered overhead and the gardai waited in their squad cars until the public disorder unit arrived on the scene. The brawl lasted a good ten/fifteen minutes. This was not a case of drunks being drunks. The fight was organised through social media beforehand.

    It will probably be discussed on late night radio and in tomorrows media. It will be interesting to see if the racial aspect will be ignored. Could be a busy bank holiday weekend for the coppers!

    Misleading thread title and OP - no mention of Africans in the link.

The train was delayed for 10 minutes.

    The Irish Times will do anything to avoid the "black" word.

    No NT, it does not. The OP is blatantly racist.

    Trouble is not new in Portmarnock on a sunny day. Last year something similar happened with a load of drunk scangers (white as snow) descending on the place on one of the few sunny days we got. The people of Portmarnock must be the only people in Ireland who don't like good weather.

    The racial angle is a new one though. I was down Henry St/Jervis St last Saturday and a group of about 30 black teens tore past me at a rate of knots chased by a similar group of black teens. God knows what was going on.

    The cops should be in cracking heads and giving people a dose of pepper spray. These feral little sh*ts, white and black, have been treated with kid gloves for too long.
