Gardai in Bray have commended the people of the town for their excellent behaviour throughout the St. Patrick's Day Festival.
'There were a small number of public order incidents in Bray over the weekend,' said Detective Inspector Frank Keeneghan of Bray Garda Station.
He added that there were two assaults carried out by women from Dun Laoghaire, however they were involved in a long-running dispute and just happened to be in the Bray area at the time.
There was a significant garda presence on the seafront throughout the parade and over the weekend, which went some way towards preventing any further public order incidents.
Det. Insp. Keeneghan added that large crowds came to the town from outside of Bray and overall there was very little trouble given the huge numbers of people.
Gardai policed the incoming darts to ensure that people were not carrying alcohol. There were signs in place informing visitors that it is illegal to drink alcohol in public in Bray.
