Gardaí are investigating a number of public order incidents that took place in Dublin yesterday afternoon.
One incident occurred at the East pier in Howth where large groups of youths clashed with rival groups and were dispersed by gardaí. During the incident, a 16-year-old boy fell from the pier and onto the rocks below.
The boy was taken to Beaumont Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A second incident occurred at Kilbarrack Dart Station just after 5:30pm involving a large group of teenagers who were getting into fights.
A 14-year-old boy received injuries to his head during the course of the conflict. While the boy was being assisted, gardaí reported that ambulance personnel were attacked by youths at the scene.
Gardaí were also attacked by the crowd of teenagers before a number of youths were chased from the scene. Two teenage boys were arrested for public order offences while an investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
