Joyriders Filmed Driving Treacherously In Finglas


Share this article


Footage of joyriders driving dangerously in a Finglas estate is going viral.

Gardai are investigating the three minute clip filmed in the Berryfield estate on Friday.

It shows cars crashing into each other and spinning out of control, narrowly missing onlookers.

The cars continue to be driven even after the back wheel comes off one of the vehicles.

Eyewitness Paul has told 98FM it was like watching a video game.

"It was like something out of Grand Theft Auto. They didn't care about anyone around them. Driving around like lunatics! And when the gardai arrived on the scene, every one of those young lads put a smile on their face and they were running around after the guards."

Paul has also told Adrian Kennedy that Dublin Fire Brigade was called to deal with vehicles.

"The fire brigade were there as well putting out one car. And then the young fellas decided to light the black car on fire."

Local TD Noel Rock says he's shocked and disgusted. 

"These individuals were thugs, pure and simple. They need to be held account to the full rigours of the law. The Berryfield estate is full of good hard-working decent people. They shouldn't have to put up with this rubbish. 98FM celebrates the Best of Dublin. This was probably the worst of Dublin."

Any witnesses are being asked to contact Gardai in Finglas on 6667500.
