A restaurant worker in Dublin city centre says a laneway that the restaurant looks out on was used as a public toilet over the weekend.
It comes after hundreds of people were seen drinking on the streets of the capital, with suggestions such scenes could delay the re-opening of all pubs.
'Darren' told Lunchtime Live: "I work in a restaurant which is just around the corner on Trinity Street - it was a conveyor belt of people using the laneway to go to the toilet.
"Girls, boys, men, women - in front of the restaurant, behind the restaurant - women's used sanitary towels left at the back of the door, just feces everywhere.
"It was an absolute nightmare.
"I'd say at least throughout the night maybe 200 people... [were] using our window as a toilet in front of guests, it's just a joke".
"Shocking, absolutely shocking, I have never seen anything like this.
"Not even on Paddy's Night would you get what we saw on Saturday, it was absolutely disgraceful.
"We called the Guards, we had three Guards come in and they said that they were the only three Guards for the whole area.
"With that, they said that they tried to move groups of people - but they'd move from one side of the lane to the other - that was it.
"They were just under-staffed".
"It wasn't so much the volume of people, there was a lot of people down that area... which is fine, I get it.
"But it was the use of the laneway and just in a public space, the inhibitions just went.
"People are eating their food and they looking out the window and girls are using the laneway as a toilet, it's just disgraceful.
"If they knew that pubs are selling takeaway alcohol, which is fine, then why not stick portaloos around certain areas so that people can use the toilet?
"It's inevitable that you're going to need to go to the toilet after a drink.
"It's just common sense, and I just think it was a lack of planning".
