A succession of videos recording an Irish girl’s racist rant on a Limerick train has been reported to the Gardaí by Irish Rail.
In the videos, which were originally posted to Twitter, a lady might be seen and heard making expletive-ridden comments towards fellow passengers.
Twitter user ‘TheBexWay’ filmed the girl on a train to Limerick Junction on Sunday from Limerick Colbert station. She messaged the Irish Rail report through the excursion, saying the girl was making abusive comments for ten minutes.
As stated by the Twitter user, who didn’t want her name published, the woman was reacting angrily to some other passenger having a bag on a seat.
“F**k away back to India. Don’t give your guff to me, you f**king cheeky p***k.
The girl then took aim at another passenger who seemed to stand up for the folks she was mistreating, saying: “consider the awful head of that fella.”
“That’s the only reason he’s backing you up is because he is awful.”
In accordance with the publisher, the passengers left their seats.
“You don’t really get the full effect of what occurred from the video. She was sitting crying bloody murder in their own faces.
“I didn’t feel safe. If that turned right into a fist fight, there would have been nobody there to help us.”
A spokesman for Irish Rail told Independent.ie that behaviour like this WOn’t be stood on their service.
“The footage is quite clear and very shocking and we welcome the fact that another person in the public could help in identifying the individual involved.”
In March, a study issued by the European Network against Racism Ireland (ENAR Ireland) found that there was an alarming growth in the amount of racism events being reported over the last six months.
A total of 245 reports were made in that time period, which is an increase in the prior interval of 55.
