Disgrace in Dublin: Shock as couple engage in 'sex act' on busy street in broad daylight

A video has emerged showing two people performing a sex act on a busy Dublin street.
The footage appears to show a man and a woman moving suggestively on the doorstep of a building on Aungier Street in broad daylight.
Groups of shocked pedestrians, including a child, walked past the pair while the alleged sex act took place.
Another group passing the couple appeared to be tourists.
The couple seemed to be oblivious to the passers-by.
One of the people involved appeared to be in state of undress as the two lay on the ground.
Independent.ie have blurred the still images taken from a video recording of the incident which occurred at approximately 6.45pm this evening.
Dublin Lord Mayor Christy Burke told Independent.ie that he found such behaviour "abhorrent".
“First of all, this [behaviour] is appalling and disgusting. I find it abhorrent that someone would do such a thing in this city,” he said.
“Hopefully it’s an isolated incident because, thankfully, it’s not something I hear about everyday.”
“I find this kind of behaviour, just as I would an attack or a mugging, totally unacceptable.”
A Garda spokesperson told Independent.ie that they had yet to receive any complaints “in relation to an incident on Aungier Street on Monday evening”.
