Residents terrorised by joyriders in Cherry Orchard have complained about damage being done to the area.

It is understood that the rallying continued along Cherry Orchard Avenue near Ballyfermot after Gardai left the scene on Monday night.

The vehicles were later burned out on a green area beside a creche and Dublin City Council removed the metal car shells yesterday morning.

One resident, who asked not to be named, said: “This area is an absolute kip I’ve put in a transfer request.

“My kids were playing on the road when they started. I had to run and get them in. It’s absolutely disgusting. Nobody should have to live like this. Residents around here don’t know what to do.”

A mother told the Irish Mirror: “My son used to lock himself into his room when he heard the cars screeching up and down the road because he was so scared but now he’s used to it.
