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 community at the hands of intoxicated young people.We also are presented with a credible reason why young people who are involved in sporting activities suffer illness or death as a result of the over indulgence in alcohol and drugs while pushing their bodies to physical destruction simply to satisfy parental satisfaction.It should also be noted that parents removed many photos from a number of social media sites but not before all those photos were copied and saved by this website. These images can be viewed in the password protected 'media section' of this website. 

And these youths, young adults and their parents can be seen on a number of social networking sites.  What was even more remarkable was a resident who drove her car with a ribbon sticker on the boot that said 'Cherishing children' as her sons conducted the most unimaginable antisocial activities against children and elderly residents on the road of Saint Johns Park West.

'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.

2012 and similar antisocial problems still exist on this road today.

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 to his home to the centre of Saint Johns Park West as Garda cars are heard screaming around in pursuit of stolen motor vehicles. This was seen by many residents 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 drug buddies in Greenpark if you as much as threaten them with the Gardai. But the vast majority of the antisocial activities on the road came to a sudden halt in the years 2012/2013. Bad luck followed and will continue to follow those who tormented the elderly, were violent and abusive to young children and who made life a misery for very many people on the road.The Saint Johns Park West GYPSY CURSE will not be lifted until those who caused so much heartache and pain finally admit their guilt and seek forgiveness from all those they tormented. And we have yet to publish a Valentines card sent to an elderly couple on Johns Park West (possibly wrong house number) signed personally by all the lads and included a condom stuck to the inside of the card accompanied by a number of vulgar remarks. 

                                                               2012 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 (2008) 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 go out early in the morning and pop their heads over into neighbouring gardens  in order to examine the destruction, as they grin and sneer in the direction of their neighbours. Once again the whistling adult GAA activist was in his element laughing and sneering as he peered over his neighbours garden wall at the mess left by the lads on the previous night. 

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, (again gardai informed) 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 contacted the gardai. 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 (living centre of road) 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.
