Local Councillor Shares Warning About Late Night Attacks In Skerries

Longitude is currently well underway as Post Malone and Co ripped up the stage in Marlay Park.

The week-long concert is a non-camping event, meaning many festival goers will be travelling home late at night.

Councillor Sharon Tolan received a message from two girls who were attacked on their way home from the concert in Skerries.

She said that: “Two young girls returning from Longitude Friday night were robbed by two men with baseball bats in a car in the Skerries area.

“Awful experience for these two lovely girls just out enjoying themselves. While the weekend is now ruined for these two, they wanted me to warn other festival goers!

“Please be careful, travel in groups and stick together. If you’re on a bus, ensure you have a taxi or lift from where the bus drops you. Be safe.”

If you’re hitting up the festival this weekend, be extremely careful.
