Nine men charged in relation to alleged looting incidents in Tallaght

The Lidl supermarket was destroyed allegedly by looters

Eight men are set to appear at the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning following attacks on two supermarkets in Tallaght last night.

They are also investigating other incidents in the area.

In a statement issued to Her yesterday evening, Lidl said: "We are aware of the very serious incident at our Fortunestown Lane store this evening".

Video footage showed looters breaking into the supermarket in Tallaght and making off with goods from within, another video showed some of the looters ripping down part of the walls of the shop with a mechanical digger in what looks like an attempt to steal the store's safe.

Centra has also confirmed an incident at one of its West Dublin stores. It said it was not in a position to comment further.

"A gang of young men broke in, robbed the store and smashed it up as well".

South Africa parliament votes to confiscate land owned by white farmers
Eighty-five minutes have been set aside to consider the draft resolution at a plenary sitting of the National Assembly on Tuesday. In a stunning reparations effort, the South African parliament voted to seize all of the country's White-owned land.

JOE reader Liam Gaughan sent in this video of the Lidl store today, and in the broad light of day, the substantial damage to the semi-demolished store is much more visible.

He added: "I am particularly mindful that these actions have taken place in the midst of a code red weather warning when our emergency services are at full stretch".

Meanwhile, 46-year-old Keith Kelly of Suncroft Road in Tallaght and 43-year-old Paul Freeman of Russell Green in Tallaght were charged with trespassing with intent to commit an offence at a Lidl supermarket in Fortunestown Lane in Citywest. Later, a group of youth stole a telescopic JCB from a nearby site and started smashing the roof of the store.

Another councillor Cathal King said the local community was "absolutely fuming". "It is a absolute disgrace".

The group allegedly used angle-grinders to cut through shutters before stealing alcohol and a safe during the raid in Tallaght, Dublin on Friday night. Tallaght has a population of 100,000 people.

"The mindless destruction of the shop is an absolute disgrace".
