Violence has broken out in Dublin this evening leaving 3 dead, as Pro Garth Rebels clashed with local Croke Park residents.
Thousands of Garth Brooks fans held an overnight vigil outside Croke Park, protesting over Dublin City Council’s decision to only grant 3 licenses out of the 5. They claim the controversial decision has displaced more than 160,000 people.
However, the protest turned ugly, when a number of extremists began firing into the crowds with semi automatic weapons.
The Croke Park Residents Association (CPRA) has claimed responsibility for the attack and has released footage of them burning a picture of Garth Brooks in the streets.
The CPRA has links with terrorists organisations and is believed to be funded and reviewing arms from middle eastern militant groups, who are hell bent on preventing Garth Brooks from performing anywhere in the world.
3 have been confirmed dead, all of them pensioners over the age of 60, 2 of them wearing cowboy hats and the third in a cheap pair of chaps.
Many more have been seriously injured and some reports from the region are suggesting that even more have been killed in the violent clashes.
Pro Garth rebels had been heard chanting “Allahu Garthbar” before the incident, which translates to mean, “God is Garth”.
Fears are growing that the escalating violence between the 2 groups could translate into a full blown civil war. The international community is calling for a peaceful resolution to the crisis and the United Nations has offered to send in Peace Keeping forces to help control the dangerous situation.
More updates as we get them.
