Councillor Patrick Casey has praised the actions of the Gardai after an illegal rave was brought to a halt in the Devil’s Glen, Ashford on Saturday night.
Hundreds of tickets had been sold for the event which had been advertised in Dublin as the “Mystery bus rave”, more than 100 patrons had made their way over a mile into the woods where a DJ with full sound system set were in place.
Gardai intercepted a number of buses on the N11 which were turned back.
Councillor Casey said “The Gardai put a halt to it at 11pm on Saturday night, but anyone visiting the Devils Glen on Sunday morning would have seen the mess that was left behind them even though the rave never got going”.
Residents close to Kiloughter beach were left fuming last week when a group went on an all night drinking session and burnt a life buoy south of the station house, a resident told Wicklownews.net “I have no problem with people having a bit of fun and even a drink but the mess they left behind them and burning a life buoy is not acceptable”.
