Dozens of Dublin's Skateboarding community gathered outside The Temple Bar Pub yesterday to protest the alleged assault incident.


The incident in question which occurred on Monday evening, involved an altercation between what witnesses have said to be at least two teenage skateboarders and at least four security staff working in the area.


Phone videos and Temple Bar Webcam footage of the altercation circulated online with security staff being criticised for their handling of the situation.


The two teenagers have since been identified as being 13 and 16 years old - and one can be seen being dragged inside the pub following the altercation.


The protestors, who remained peaceful throughout the demonstration, called on those responsible to apologise for the incident, and a video circulating online shows the crowd chanting "Come out and say sorry."



Gardaí who were present at yesterday's demonstration say they are investigating assault allegations following the incident.


The Temple Bar Pub has been contacted for comment.
