THEYV’E DUBBED THEMSELVES the Nenagh Feins, but they may just be Ireland’s dumbest criminals.

Only days after seven young men and a pensioner were killed on Donegal roads, three young men have posted a video on Youtube showing themselves driving recklessly around country roads.

It was reported on RTE News that the Gardaí have seized two cars and interviewed three people, getting their information from the video. Number plates are in full view and there’s even an email address of the person who made the video.

The video clearly shows a driver with his hand and leg outside a window, and a passenger doing something similar at the same time. In another segment, a passenger is seen with most of his body out of the car.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) forwarded the footage to gardai and. The film is around six minutes long and was viewed more than 9,000 times. It has been reposted online since and currently has 12,600 views.

Noel Brett of the RSA said he was furious, outraged and horrified by the driving behaviour.

The so-called Nenagh Feins.
