WATCH: Chaotic scenes in Oliver Bond flat complex as dozens attend party wearing no masks or social distancing
The disgraceful scenes appear to breach Level 3 restrictions that were put in place in Dublin on Friday in a bid to stem the rampant spread of COVID-19 in the capital
This is the shocking moment a party attended by dozens of people wearing no masks and not social distancing raged late into the night at a Dublin flat complex.
The worrying outdoor gathering took place in the Oliver Bond flats in the south inner city as cases of COVID-19 continue to surge in the capital.
Footage of the party shows throngs of people appearing to show little regard for social distancing guidelines gathered in a communal area of the complex.
A marquee has been set up and loud music can be heard blaring out from a DJ booth.
- Disgraceful scenes as Dublin city centre video shows hundreds of young people ‘partying’ with no masks or social distancing
- Shameful video shows hundreds of ‘hippy crack’ cannister and empty drink bottles left by ravers at all-night party at Dublin flat complex
The disgraceful scenes appear to breach Level 3 restrictions that were put in place in Dublin on Friday in a bid to stem the rampant spread of COVID-19 in the capital.
The chaotic gathering is understood to have carried on until 5am with residents who did not attend the party forced to launch a massive clean-up operation this morning after the area was left strewn with rubbish.
Empty drinks bottles and nitrous oxide cannisters can be seen discarded all over the ground in the complex.
Dublin Live has contacted gardai for comment on the worrying scenes recorded last night.
Under the restrictions, which remain in place until at least October 10, social and family gatherings in a person’s home or garden are restricted to just six people from a single household.
Organised outdoor events are also subject to strict regulations allowing 15 people at most to attend.
Gardai ramped up their presence across Dublin city and county from yesterday morning after the new restrictions were put in place.
