Gardai stop fight with Facebook tip

GARDAI managed to stop a huge organised row between 75 teens after plans to stage the fight were spotted online.

Gardai were contacted by a number of people who spotted the plans on Twitter and Facebook and last night they thanked those who alerted them.

"Their actions prevented what had the potential to be a serious incident," said Garda Superintendent Jim Cannon, Laytown, Co Meath.
