Correcting the ugly narrative in Tallaght on 14/6/2020
We gathered rather reliably that a two legged football match was arranged between a group of boys. Apparently, the first leg took place last week Friday 12th June. Then yesterday, the lads played the second leg. Thereafter there was a small misunderstanding which appeared to be rowdy considering the number of people at the match, but certainly wasn't an arranged fight like some mischief makers are suggesting. People are taking a harmless and If anything, a commendable effort by these young people to stay fit and organised and to close ranks out of context. It is a shame, people have vented a load of racist slurs on something they know very little or nothing about. It is unfortunate.
