The Irish Independent has published amateur footage of the riotous scenes from Portmarnock beach yesterday but edited the footage to remove clips of Gardaí watching and recording the violence without acting even when a young girl appeared to be seriously injured.
UPDATE: The Independent has removed the page and video
While the Gardaí may have been waiting for back-up, the Garda Helicopter and Public Order unit for example, they may receive criticism for walking away while a young girl was apparently knocked out. it is unclear why the Irish Independent has censored the video.
