On Saturday Gardaí crashed a “Break the Rules” beach party in Dublin, with a total of 10 patrol cars dispatched to Dollymount Beach.

The party was promoted on social media, with posts asking potential attendees to message the organisers to discover the time, date and location of the event.

Reportedly, upon messaging the page, organisers would privately send out a map to the party destination, which was situated near Bull Wall Walkway.

“We have two loudspeakers, lightshow, fire and maybe fireworks”, the text added.
Arriving just minutes before the rave was set to begin at 7pm, ten Garda cars dispersed would-be party goers and sent everyone home.

“Fella with the gear for it got sent on his way”, an update on the party page read. “About 10 people still hanging around. Cars floating up and down Bull Island like they’re looking for it.”

At the same time, hundreds of people gathered for a social event in Cork on Grand Parade, which resulted in 9 arrests.

Additionally, there was recently reports of widespread outdoor drinking on Dublin’s South William street.
