Gardaí Investigating After 80 People Allegedly Show Up To Illegal Rave In Laois

The Irish Times reports a similar event is being planned for tomorrow night.

There are concerns another illegal rave, similar to one held in Laois earlier this month, will take place tomorrow night.

The Irish Times reports extensive damage was done to a house in Stradbally on December 12th, after over 80 people gathered for a party.

The property had been rented via Airbnb to an individual claiming he wished to stay there for a weekend hiking trip with work colleagues.

It's believed organisers are now planning another event in Dublin for New Year's Eve.

Reporter with the Irish Times, Jack Power, says the secret gathering infringed covid-19 restrictions:


Gardaí have since launched an investigation into an illegal gathering in Laois earlier this month.

Portlaoise gardaí are carrying out an investigation to identify the organisers of the event and the alleged breaches of the Health Act.
