I never thought I’d see someone getting arrested against the spire. I’m determined to get other pictures of people getting arrested against the other landmarks of Dublin. I’ve no idea what the arrest was for.
Hi, I’m Daniel O’Connell, and this is O’Connell Street. I stand here with Jim Larkin and my pal, “Taxi Driver Jesus”. Everything here has a story and a price. One thing I’ve learned after 134 years - you never know who is gonna climb that spire.
So myself and Aideen were walking to get the bus in town last night and 3 lads on O Connell St. bridge started attacking a homeless man, kicking him on the ground. We stepped in and got them to stop. An ambulance came for the homeless guy and then the gardai finally arrived and took away the one attacker who was still there.
Between 6 and 9 people stayed to help the hurt man and keep the attacker there until he was taken away, it was cool to see a group of strangers helping together.
This is from a protest on O Connell St. They were protesting about that stupid american film that insults Muhammad. A fucking idiotic protest in my opinion, total nonsense reacting on such a large scale to a shitty short movie.
