The cause of why the fight broke is unclear, but one of the outnumbered members of staff appeared to rush at the larger group with a chair on a number of occasions.

At one point, the group of four and the staff members clashed, trading fists, but one member of the larger group picked up and swung a bottle at the servers.a group of people walking on a city street: A fight broke out on the busy South William Street on Thursday evening between waiting staff at a restaurant in the area and four males.© Provided by Extra.ie A fight broke out on the busy South William Street on Thursday evening between waiting staff at a restaurant in the area and four males.

Among the melee, it appeared that the bottle struck the head of one of the servers who could be seen recoiling and retreating, while the second waiter continued to fight.

The members of the group could also be seen rushing to tables outside nearby pubs to grab glasses, which they also launched at the waiters.

Eventually members of the surrounding public stepped in to break up the scrap, as people in the background could be heard indicating that Gardai had been called.a group of people standing in front of a building: Video footage from the incident seen by Extra.ie showed two members of staff attempting to chase the group away down the end of South William Street onto Exchequer Street and Wicklow Street.© Provided by Extra.ie Video footage from the incident seen by Extra.ie showed two members of staff attempting to chase the group away down the end of South William Street onto Exchequer Street and Wicklow Street.
