While Halloween is supposed to be all fun and games, sometimes the mischief that people get up to on October 31st can be a step too far.

We know that fireworks and bonfires are part and parcel of the festivities but they can only really be fun when they're done so in a controlled manner.

Take the video below. The bonfire in Moyclare is in a field and what's being burned is only stacked about 2ft high.

It's controlled and easily put out if it looks like things might be getting out of hand.

But in Tallaght, a group of people were spotted setting something else alight.

Although they have a massive pile of stuff for burning beside them (a stack that looks to be seven or eight foot high), they opt to burn the wall instead.

The effing wall.

"Bonfire ... tallaght style.. let's burn the wall instead ..." says the Twitter user regarding the main image.

Another Twitter user tagged Dublin Fire Brigade in a tweet saying that:

"Just drove past the field in Cushlawn on the Kiltipper road, Tallaght. There was 4 or 5 lads on top of the already started bonfire."

Dublin Fire Brigade have already issued multiple warnings about what to do if bonfires and fireworks go wrong on Halloween night.

"STOP, DROP & ROLL. If you find yourself in a position where your costume, or clothes, catch fire do the Neymar. Running will only fan the flames and help the fire spread. STOPPING, DROPPING & ROLLING will smother the flames," they said.

They added that: "Remember anything can be in an illegal bonfire including gas cylinders, aerosols, fireworks. Keep clear, there is no safe distance."
