A teenager has been arrested after a brick was thrown through the window of one of Dublin's best known gaybars.
The attack happened on the eve of the Pride Festival which is taking place in the city today.
A rock with homophobic language was fired into Pantibar on Capel Street at around 11 o' clock last night.
Tape was attached to the brick, containing the message:
“Píteoga amach as Eireann”
A brick thrown through Pantibar's window just now. No one hurt.
It says in Irish "FAIRIES (fags) OUT OF IRELAND"
But we are Ireland
Happy Pride everyone. It's going to be a great day tomorrow, full of Irish love and queer joy.
Be thankful for it, cos some people have neither pic.twitter.com/AQe2YwXpvY

Gardai arrested a boy in his late teens shortly after the incident and he was taken to Store street Gardai station.
He has since been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
No one was injured.
