Blanchardstown - Residents living in Fear as new gang culture takes shape
Gardai in Blanchardstown are struggling to deal with an upsurge of crime and violence and anti social behaviour by gangs of youths in the new communities areas of Tyrrelstown North Dublin. 

The anti social behaviour including a number of assaults , one of an elderly man has left residents in fear of going out in the evening.

A number of residents have taken to social media with harrowing stories .

One resident wrote: “They litter, destroy property, break into people’s houses and attack innocent passers-by.”

Another resident said that she could no longer take her dog out for a walk in the evening, commenting:

"I don’t take the dog out in the evening, garden only. I also don’t walk on the streets, just in the park.It’s terrible that we can’t feel safe taking the dog out for an evening stroll "

Another Resident wrote :

"I live in Tyrrelstown for the last 10 years and boy is this place in trouble . I've had a gang of 12 black kids attack my car while picking my son up from creche . They had been msessing on a zebra crossing , when i told them to move , one of them charged at me and spat in the window of my car . My 3 year old son was with me , my 70 year old neighbour was walking her dog to the shop when 2 blacks on a bike rammed into her , one jumped off and punched her in the back of the head . she fell so hard she ruptured her knee caps . Also my work colleague who lives in Tyrrelstwon was knocked unconscious with a choke hold while 2 black lads robbed his phone and wallet . these are my personal stories , there are many more problems . just thought i'd give you some first hand knowledge . This place will be a ghetto in the next 10 years  "
Just last month a Tyrrelstown man Herton Diansambu (20) appeared before Blanchardstown District Court accused of striking a woman in the face and shoving her and her 13-year-old son to the ground after the boy tried to protect his mother , the incident happened while the the young mum out walking with her two children , she was grabbed around the neck by a man who demanded she hand over her mobile phone .

At the weekend , the violence spread to the neighbouring town of Balbriggan , A father and son were injured after an attack by a gang of up to 15 youths in Balbriggan .

The man sustained facial injuries while the teenage boy is also believed to have sustained minor injuries.The incident happened on Bath Road at 9:35pm on Saturday night.  A Garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí are investigating an assault on a man in his 40s and a teenage boy at Bath Road at 21.45.Anyone with information should contact Balbriggan Garda Station."


   
The Fingal Area prides itself as being one of the most multicultural and welcoming areas of Dublin with a new mega mosque being planned for warrenstown next year , But it has struggled to deal with many of the issues . 

This Evening , Residents in Balbriggan held a demonstration outside Balbriggan Garda station against what they describe as "the constant fear and issues with youth gangs in our community"
   

The demonstration follows a number of similar demonstrations by the Residents of Tyrrelstown against the ongoing assaults and antisocial behaviour in the area .
