Two vehicles were “driving erratically” when one of them smashed into an official Garda car.

The dangerous drivers continued to race up and down the road, ignoring the officers’ instructions to stop.

Videos of the incident emerged online, showing the shocking smash.

Groups of people gathered at Cherry Orchard Avenue to watch the cars, some cheering them on.

Gardai reported that nobody was injured but investigations are ongoing.

A garda spokesperson said: “Shortly after 7:30pm this evening, Monday September 19, 2022, Gardai responded to reports of dangerous driving in the Cherry Orchard area.

“Upon arrival Gardai observed two vehicles driving erratically.

“Both vehicles failed to stop when requested to do so by Gardai and one vehicle collided with an official Garda vehicle. 

“No injuries were reported during the incident.”

Gardai are appealing to any member of the public who may have witnessed this incident to come forward.

Gardai are also appealing to anyone who was travelling in the Cherry Orchard area at this time, who may have camera (dash cam) footage to make this available to investigating officers.

They added: “Anyone with any information in relation to this incident should contact Ballyfermot Garda Station on 01 666 7200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.”

Irish politicians voiced their shock and fury online.


Noel Rock said: “Staggering. This is the reality of what Gardai and the justice system are up against.”

Fianna Fail Cllr. Keith Connolly said: “Atrocious behaviour, I hope the culprits are caught.”

Cormac Devlin TD condemned the scenes “of utter lawlessness” this evening.

The Fianna Fail Dublin spokesperson said: “Videos posted online tonight show scenes of utter lawlessness in a Dublin community.

“The clips posted online show cars driving erratically and ramming Gardai without any fear or thought for the Gardai on duty.

“This is evidence of the shocking incidents Gardai are forced to deal with as a small proportion of people terrorise a whole community.”

He said added: “My thoughts are with the Gardai having to deal with those incidents this evening as well as the majority of good people being terrorised by these thugs.”

Others described the incident as “horrifying”, “shocking” and “terrifying”.
