A SHOCKING video posted online appears to show drug users injecting themselves in broad daylight in one of the capital’s busiest tourist areas.

The seven minute clip, posted to Youtube earlier this week, shows a couple who appear to be injecting heroin.

It was shot in Templebar, one of the city’s most popular tourist spots during the peak of the summer season.

At one point in the video the group openly exchange needles, in full view of passersby.

One of the men appears to be holding several syringes and offering them to the others.

The woman in the group also appears to inject herself.

It comes the same week as Failte Ireland announces the strongest tourist numbers since the economic downturn.
