A video, circulating online, shows two men entering through the front gate of a house on Glasheen Road, where they picked up and threw glass bottles — that appear to be neatly packed in bags outside — at an occupied house.
Gardaí have confirmed they are investigating the incident which occurred at around 12 midday on Wednesday. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
The incident follows days of protests held by locals from Magazine Road and the surrounding areas in response to what they claim are large student house parties taking place in the area.
The video was taken by one of the young women inside the house from a top window.
In the video, one woman shouts: “Oh my God get out of my house. What the f**k?”, to which one of the men responds: “What the f**k yourself. We f***king live here. We have to f***king live here.” A woman responds: “We didn’t do anything, it’s our own house.”
Catherine Clancy, chairperson of the Magazine Road and Surrounding Area Residents Association toldthey were horrified by the video.
City councillor Mick Finn also said locals do not believe the men in the clip are residents of the area.
