Dublin city centre is becoming a 'no-go' zone, abandoned by Gardaí, city councillors have claimed.  It comes after Olympian Jack Woolley was attacked on Saturday night. 

Ahmet in Dublin is originally from Turkey who also witnessed an attack over the weekend. He told Adrian Kennedy what happened.

Eddie in Dublin also chatted to Adrian - he feels like more public transport needs to be available after pubs close to accommodate the crowds trying to get home. Tony from Kerry visited Dublin recently and recounts his trip - he found it quite intimidating in the city centre.
