VIDEO: Alarming footage of a man being beaten up by bouncers in Dublin [Graphic content]
Liveline shared the footage on Friday afternoon.
Distressing footage has emerged of three security staff attacking a man outside Dicey's on Harcourt Street in Dublin.
RTÉ's Liveline shared the footage on Friday afternoon, which shows a young man being kicked and punched to the ground before being violently restrained by three men in visi-jackets.
The young man then gets up and wipes his bloodied nose, before appearing to fling something at the bouncers, who then descend on him once more.
The manager of BC Security, the security firm responsible for Dicey's, told Liveline his version of the circumstances behind the incident.
“The man was brought out of the location because there was an incident inside the venue. He was quite inebriated and he was quite aggressive,” he said.
“He wanted to get back in to get his jacket from the cloakroom but he had lost his ticket, so he was told to come back at 4pm the next day, but he refused to listen to the security staff.”
He added that he did not have the full details of the incident and had only seen part of the footage.
“The guidelines set out by the private security authority state that security staff would use reasonable force insofar as dealing with a violent situation like that,” he said.
