An Inishowen man has claimed groups of teenagers are causing havoc in the Muff area.
The man, who did not wish to be named, said that one group of around 15 were intimidating locals.
“The Gardai have been informed and are trying to monitor the situation, but haven’t been able to do much about it so far,” he said.
“I myself have felt intimidated going past them when they are all gathered in such a large group and I purposely cross the road to avoid them.”
He also claimed to have witnessed the group verbally abuse a young female who works in a local business, leaving her in tears.
“The group is made up of boys and girls, two thirds of them fellas. This has been going on since Christmas, and not a face mask among them either.”
When contacted earlier today, a local County Councillor said he was only aware of a number of minor incidents on St Patrick’s Night.
Sinn Fein’s Terry Crossan said the issues, involving teenagers, were mainly mild in nature and mostly occurred around St Patrick’s Day. He also praised local Gardaí for the way they handled the matters.
“On St Patrick’s night on Aught road, a number of youths were drinking and pulled down a local resident’s fence. That road recently re-tarred, and cones used to block the road. Guards were aware of that and dealt with the issues promptly,” Cllr Crossan said.Tags:
