The purpose of this website is to provide visitors with a clearer understanding of the underlying causes of antisocial behaviour in local communities Information that has been documented and reported to the relevant authorities over a considerable number of years about a campaign of antisocial behaviour that was conducted, directed and executed by a very small  number of individual residents and their children living in the small community of Saint johns Park West Clondalkin. The activities perpetrated by these people included violent assault, racism, damage to property and a whispering campaign to isolate their victims from their immediate neighbours. Along with other descrete and covert activities, these people had the potential to bring this small community of decent and law abiding people to its knees. Their involvement in various sports clubs in the Clondalkin area (along with some of their associates who were not involved in sport activities) and beyond, created a shield that protected them from criticism, investigation and prosecution. The most alarming aspect of all the antisocial activities directed at individual residents living on the road over many years, was the ease by which the perpretrators of the antisocial behaviour found support from a number of individuals in positions of authority within the local community. The sam people backed their members or associates without taking into consideration the hardship and pain experienced by the victims od atiocial behaviour at the hands of thugs and criminals. In actual fact, residents who were directly affected by the many years of antisocial activities were never once facilitated with a knock on the hall  door by the same people in authority who allegedly work in the interest and support of all the community. Website visitors should also visit or where they can post their comments and provide feedback on a growing scourge that is taking an increasing grip on modern society.

Have you ever lived with problems of antisocial behaviour being directed at yourt home and family.Have you ever wondered why individuals  in positions of authority in a local sport club suddenly appear out of the woodwork to defend their clubs honour and support a small minority of individuals and their friends who were the source of the problem, only after you, your family and other families were forced to pack-up and move after enduring years of antisocial behaviour, yet the same people were nowhere to be seen as they held a  strange silence when they were  really needed to speak out. People who knew exactly what was going-on over many years, (reported to the relevant authorities) yet held silent until those who were deeply troubled by acts of antisocial behaviour were forced  to sell their homes. Then and only then did they come out of the woodwork to deny such activities took place. Then and only then did they find it right (without having all the facts at hand) to defend their memebers and their members friends. Even when the evidence (and many in positions of authority who had the facts at hand) was placed in front of them, they defended their friends honour and integrity without once asking the question ' How do i help and protect the victims of these activities'.
Have you ever written a letter of despair to the chairperson of your local Gaelic club only to find a reply to that letter long overdue? Welcome to antisocial behaviour at its best, welcome to Saint Johns Park West Clondlakin.

The denial that antisocial activities took place in this housing estate over very many years clearly demonstrates to those who visit this website how people try to cover up the events that took place, events that were documented and reported to the relevant authorities over many years, yet the same people and their sporting colleagues still persist in denying that antisocial behaviour took place. Complaints of defamation is now being circulated to website providers, yet defamation can only take place if an untruthful allegation is made. The severe nature of the antisocialbehaviour activites that took place by a number of youths (now young adults 2010) on behalf of their parents, along with their friends in Greenpark, reported to the Gardai over many years, cannot be an untruth, despite individuals  insisting that such activities never took place.

When your home is under constant attack at all hours of the day and night as your neighbours and their sons( central road area) laugh, sneer and swear at you and your family as you walk down the pathway. When you walk out your front door and you have all the lads in their *** tracksuits and  football gear cursing and swearing and saying Kn******,  BA******, SC**, Cun** and the rest of it, while their parents stand at the end of their driveways in great humour at the events taking place. When your next door neighbour (parent-central area of road) challenges you to a fight "anywhere but not on the road" because three pieces of garden hedging fell into his garden, or your front door is kicked off its hinges (centre of road) at ten o' clock at night by a youth living (entrance area to road) on the same road, and you say there is none or has ever been any  antisocial behaviour on the road. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. How dare you. Some people on this road should hang their heads in shame. 

 Is this just a fantasy, is it all made up, are residents trying to devalue and make difficult the ability to sell their property by making ridiculous allegations or are those once involved in the many years of antisocial behaviour on the road now trying to protect their friends or even disassociate themselves from the same friends and  the activities that once took place.

Is a near riot during the closing days of March 2009 (residents reported incident to Gardai) that lasted nearly six hours (Gardai present), forcing some residents to leave their homes because the scenes of violence, intimidation and drunken behaviour (Gardai never investigated how barrels of beer were secured from a local club) by youths as young as sixteen (hidden before Gardai arrived), just a fantasy? An incident where the people who were out on the road assisting Garda in their efforts to calm the situation were the same people who secured barrels of alcohol for youths. An incident that convinced many residents to finally say "enough is enough" and then place their homes  'for sale' with local auctioneers. 

 In the many years of operation, this campaign has never made a direct reference to an individual by name, despite an allegations made against the campaign that this actually occurred. There is no documentary evidence to prove this, yet this campaign has documentary evidence to prove that an  individual was openly named on an official Gaelic club website by a person  in authority in the club, a person who should have used a better level of discretion and common sense before he acted in a manner that may have caused further torment for the victims concerned at the hands of their aggressors. Posting a comment on websites for an hour and then requesting the postings to be removed ( does not mean that the postings will be lost or forgotten.This campaign has never  approached a service provider by either email or letter and mentioned any individual by name. Members relish the opportunity to be given an opportunity to expose in court the levels of antisocial behaviour activities that have taken place over many years. It would appear that there is a deeper connection involving people, who should remain neutral on issues of public concern, who have now become directly involved in an attempt to discredit and distort the truth. It has also been noted that individuals in the Clondalkin vilage area scour the internet looking for reference to places and clubs in the Clondalkin area and who then indulge in a campaign of discretiting people who post comments or make reference to antisocial websites. It is amazing what people can do without having the full facts placed before them. 

Those who view this web page should access transcripts of the Adrian Kennedy FM 104 Radio phone-in show on the 6th April 2010 or a podcast of the Joe Duffy Show on Radio 1 about antisocial behaviour  in Clondalkin.Those who defend their comrades should take a closer look at these so friends before they dismiss the contents of this websites.

Thers are individuals who send and continue to send emails directed at campaign members threatening them and telling them they are being sought after. ( email source traceable-Johns park west- centre of road- eircom user- wireless router signal recorded)One individual used his neighbours christian and surname ( name of a club member-centre od road) in the form of an email to threaten former residents. This alone tells us a lot about  the individuals who are a source of conflict on the road. A resident's son and his brother in one house using the name of his next door neighbour in order to intimidate and hopefully cause conflict. But this is not unusual for the many people who currently live or once lived on Saint Johns Park West over very many years. 

Despite an accusation( posted and then removed on that was circulated, no individual to date has made a written or otherwise, complaint to the campaign or to the authorities about this form of abuse nor has this campaign since its foundation, mentioned directly or indirectly any individual by name. The comment made that "this individual"  (posted on copies and pastes the same junk time after time, is ver interesting.If this is the case then articles, photos and comments posted on these websites were already placed by their constructors within the public domain for public scrutiny before they were copied and pasted onto antisocial websites. You will notice on the the website that the person (his comments copied) who made strong requests to the moderator to have individual comments removed or even website addresses removed ( as with a trevor daly comment) made sure his own comments and presence on the website was removed. Talk about covering your trail. See: Askaboutmoney also: asb-ireland

Any attempt to have this website removed from the internet will only result in the website being relaunched with another website provider.Individuals in the Clondakin area who attempt to silence the truth by providing website providers with untruthful information in order to close down antisocial websites are only digging a deeper hole for themselves and for those who continue to cause so many problems of antisocial behaviour in this small housing estate.

Highlighting issues of antisocial behaviour in a Clondalkin Housing Estate

Susan Boyle On Childhood Bullying: Adam Buckman  Oct 20th, 2010

With bullying and its tragic consequences making headlines, international singing sensation Susan Boyle has disclosed her own personal story. Boyle – the 49-year-old Scottish superstar who shocked the world when she unleashed a soaring rendition of I Dreamed a Dream on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2008 – talked with Oprah Winfrey Tuesday about the bullying she endured as a homely schoolgirl. Oprah raised the subject on her show because Boyle writes about the bullying in her new memoir, Susan Boyle: The Woman I was Born to Be. Boyle also has a new CD on the way, titled “The Gift.” She performed one of the songs – Crowded House’s Don’t Dream It’s Over – before sitting down for an interview with Oprah

“Let’s talk a bit about some of the things that you reveal [in the book],” Oprah probed gently. “You were bullied as a child . . . not only just bullied, but severely taunted. Do you remember some of the things people used to say to you or call you?” “Not just name-calling,” Boyle answered haltingly in her heavy Scottish accent, “you know, burning my clothes with a cigarette, stuff like that, and [trying] to trip me up.”“Burning your clothes with a cigarette,” Oprah said.“Which was really, I don’t know, it wasn’t really human,” Boyle said. “I was being hit around the head, stuff like that. . . . That is physical. The more hurtful is the psychological – the psychological is name-calling, really repeated name calling,” she said, unable to utter the names the bullies called her, though Oprah tried mightily to get her to do so.“What kinds of things would they call you, Susan?” Oprah asked.“They’re not very nice,” Boyle said quietly.Oprah asked how Boyle felt about being taunted and burned with cigarettes.“Made me feel as if nobody loved me,” Boyle said. “I didn’t really matter, I was just a target.” Oprah then gave Boyle some advice on how to get back at her childhood tormentors. “You know what you should do? You should send them your autographed CD with a note that says, ‘How ya like me now?’ ”  “Nice idea!” Boyle said, adding that today she feels more “like a princess, and I feel loved for the first time in my life.”

Susan could have lived on Saint Johns Park West, Clondalkin The torment that Susan Boyle endured was mirror-imaged for some residents at the hands of a small number of thugs. Friends of these thugs now insist that no such antisocial activities ever took place, nothing ever happened on the road. The lads to the centre of the road never caused any problems to other residents. This is all made up in order to .... that's what? Why would anyone want to make such utterly bizarre claims....for what reason, its hard to explain. When residents were forced by their neighbours to sell their homes, they left behind the type of people who tormented decent people like Susan Boyle. Susan had the last laugh, she can stand up and proudly say, 'I made it, I beat you all, I left you all behind to stew in your own soup.They say the wheel of justice turns slowly, what goes around comes around. 

A young adult who told his neighbour that the family were loosers and failures  can only cringe when he analyses his own personal achievements and that of his road buddies in camparison to those they tormented. Of course this young adult does not possess a type of mental intelligence that allows him come to this  type of conclusion, unless he was given information by others on his road. Adult holiday friends, seen on social networking websites, sometimes say just that little bit too much.


The people who troubled so many of their neighbours can be found living in their own fantasy dream world of who they think they are, only in the real world, they are not. Teenagers and young adults torment their neighbours on behalf of their parents, yet those they tormented went on to better things in life, away from the yobs on the road.When the lads on Johns Park West were posting their comments of ' degree's in table tennis' or 'the school is a kip' and "the teachers in Moyler are sh**" on Facebook and Bebo or could be seen intoxicated at 15, 16 and 17 years of age on the same websites, those they tormented were determined to secure their future's in a more civilized manner. Just like Susan Boyle. 

As the lad posed for the camera in a drunken state, a bottle of beer in his hand, his eyes more to the back of his head than to the front; the parents are clearly seen standing in the background smiling and enjoying the moment , yet within that picture (Bebo) we see the reason behind the many problems  residents endure in this small housing estate at the hands of intoxicated young people. And these youths, young adults and their parents can be seen on a number of social networking sites. 

'You can pat the dog on the back' and 'You can pat the dog the back, and 'You can pat the dog on the back',but you can't.' Can you Imagine a so called educated young adult make this type of remark to a six year old child, as he stood with other young children outside the home of the young adult. The child just wanted to pat the labrador dog on the back, but the Johns Park West clan were having nothing of it............even to a young six year old child. This and many incidents like this demonstrate to all, the type of individuals that live and continue to live on this road.

In the early hours of a weekends morning a young adult  is seen snibble down to his home on Saint Johns Park West Clondalkin. Ducking and diving from one garden to another, he makes his way from Greenpark shopping centre as Garda cars are heard screaming around in pursuit of stolen motor vehicles. This is seen by many rersidents on the road over a considerable period of time. The same adult (2010) would challenge you to a fight if a match stick fell into his garden, never mind damaging the family cars on the road or in the driveway. The thugs on this road(centre of road) have no problem in causing as much damage as possible to other residents cars but will call upon their buddies in Greenpark if you as much as threaten them with the Gardai.

                                                               2011 and nothing has changed

       A headstone placed at the entrance to the estate in memory of all those who suffered at the hands of a small number of individuals living on this road.

A closer inspection of the stone reveal that the lads (2011) once again mark their territory with black paint. No doubt the parents of these thugs will quietly attempt to remove what should never have been placed on the stone in the first place.

And what about the lads of 15/16/17 years of age who gathered in the house of their buddy (centre of road) only to come out when residents have gone to bed in order to pour cans of alcohol over their neighbours motor vehicles or pour paint on residents driveways. This is the Johns Park West lads at their best, as their parents come out early in the morning to pop their heads over into neighbouring gardens  in order to examine the destruction, as they grin and sneer in the direction of their neighbours.

Funny, specifically selected  families on this road  had two or more cars belonging to members of the family either damaged or stolen on a regular basis, yet others could leave their cars on the road or leave their driveway gates wide open all night with not so much as a plant taken or destroyed. Strange thing about those who live on this road is that everybody sees what is going on but nobody contacts the guards. They all peep from behind their windows and with the exception of one or two residents everybody else turns a blind eye to what is happening on the road.

2.30am Thursday 28th February 2008,  a resident (centre of road) is awoken by the sound of youths in the front garden removing waste from a skip-bag. Three youths are seen removing the contents of the skip bag and throwing it all over the road. The road is in a complete mess as the same youths strew a much rubbish they can in and around the area of the residents home. The same youths make absolutely sure they do not get any of the rubbish close to the homes of their friends. When disturbed the same youths run into a house two doors away from their victim, laughing and sneering as they make their getaway.
Yet another incident of the many incidents that have occured over many years on this road.

And those who know absolutely nothing nor command a  first hand knowledge of the plight of those who suffer at the hands of a small number of thugs on Saint Johns Park West, can now be found on the internet defending the same people they see as doing no wrong. We hear it on radio programmes such as the Adrian Kennedy show on FM104 where thugs are vigorously defended by people, who at the best of times,  know nothing about the victims of the antisocial behaviour, yet those who defend these thugs continuously attempyt to discret the victims of these crimes  in every way possible. Once again it's the gang mentality,defend your mates at all cost, even if it is necessary to discredit the victims of such activities.

And they you also had a resident who  had cars owned by  family members either damaged or stolen. Or another resident who had her car window broken and the contents taken f rom the rear seat, yet the cars of the certain few could remain untouched on the roadside or in the driveway, well that was until a trend was noticed in the pattern of robberies that were taking place and that information placed on the internet. You see, the road constantly checks the many websites for information but refrain from posting comments or helpful information that may be of help to those troubled by these acts of antisocial behaviour.And then on the other hand, you had a resident who contrived a break-in of his home many years ago and more recently a break-in of his car in order to make himself appear to be yet another victim of crime on the road. Make yourself a victim of crime  and you blend in with all those who  are victims of crime.
Ye once again 'Welcome to Saint johns Park West'.

Any attempt to have this website removed from the internet will only result in the website being relaunched with another website provider.Individuals in the Clondakin area who attempt to silence the truth and close down antisocial websites by providing website providers with untruthful information and the names of individuals they associate with being members of antisocial websites are only digging a deeper hole for themselves and for those who continue to cause so many problems of antisocial behaviour in this small housing estate. Local media take note.
