Gardaí break up party in Blarney shed where 100 people had gathered

The party was taking place yesterday.

GARDAÍ SAID THEY broke up a 100-strong party which was taking place in a shed in Blarney, Cork, yesterday. 

Officers attended the scene and stopped the event which was taking place yesterday evening. They said the crowds dispersed with no public order incidents.
