20mins ago we were swarmed by one undercover garda two patrol cars one sergeant and one uniformed garda.

"Despite being unable to tell us after two weeks what law we were breaking they confiscated our remaining 20 pints of Guinness (currently situated at Buncrana garda station).

"So any pre payments that were made we will gladly refund the payment asap if you contact this page thank you.
