Weren't there similar attacks on busses carried out in Rochestown/Mount Oval recently?

I remember one guy suggesting it was northsiders coming down on the bus, getting off it and throwing objects at it


Bus Eireann should inform the residents that there'll be a suspension of services in the area for a certain period of time, that will escalate exponentially if there are subsequent attacks.

Don't think the neighbours will go easy on the wee scrotes if their local bus service is suspended as winter is drawing in.

Gardaí and Bus Eireann officials mightn't be able to identify the guilty parties (despite the fact that the CCTV cameras on busses recording the bus surroundings is top class), but you can be sure the locals can and will put a stop to it if they deem it necessary

Yes similar anti social incidents happened on buses to rochestown area, Pj in

It was bad back in the mid 90s so the buses wouldn’t go up there and would just go through Baker’s road to Churchfield.
It’s the older people who will suffer again for the actions of a few scumbags

But there are cars and bikes flying around up there too. They buy the cars, don’t bother to tax and insure and are up all night doing handbrake turns. It’s pretty bad up by the primary school.

Not a cop in sight then.

But drive down to the Wellington bridge and the cops are there with their check points looking for tax and insurance.

The cops are afraid of their lives to go up to that particular area. The residents are suffering in silence.
It’s a mess.

How many times have we heard that? It's a fucked up police force, and getting less relevant by the day.

If a garda was to give one of these scobes a slap he would be in deep trouble,
Im not advocating bating the head off a fella but surely a slap is warranted in some situations, Garda morale must be low when they see the same fellas strolling around with multiple convictions ,

There's a station almost around the corner in Gurranabraher at the top of Baker's Road. Gardaí are regularly on patrol up around Knocka and nearby areas. When someone puts in a call they are usually there quickly enough if they are available. If there are multiple incidents in one night then they are going to be stretched.

Over the last few months the local media has been full of how Cork's force has been reduced in size because of the goings-on in Dublin and Drogheda.

Garda numbers in Cork are falling because the number of Gardaí retiring is greater than the number of new recruits allocated to Cork. New cops are being sent to Drogheda and Dublin.

You'll have loads of people saying Cork should have more Gardaí but if you're Drew Harris and you're looking at the gangland situation in Drogehda and Dublin where murder, attempted murder, assault and drug dealing is getting out of control and you compare it with Cork where residents are "suffering in silence" because a few teenage dirt bags are throwing stones at buses, you're going to prioritise the former.

The threat of murder out weighs the threat of a bus service being disrupted if you're the person deciding where to place your force.
