Man warns of young woman with 'south county Dublin accent' who managed to swindle him out of €500 in Dun Laoghaire The man had been sitting in a coffee shop in Dun Laoghaire when he was approached by a young woman with a "south county Dublin accent" who asked him to donate money to homeless children . Alan said the woman was convincing with her story and agreed to donate, but that he had no cash and would go to the ATM across the road.

The report from Luas operators, Transdev, says that an area on the green line past Sandyford is one of the most troublesome.

Anti-social behaviour and crime has decreased overall on the tram service over the past two years but children between the age of nine and 15 continue to cause problems.

“Loud and fearless, they don’t understand their behaviour is upsetting others," the report says, according to the Irish Times.

Jasmin Mistry, 36, received the huge sum via multiple donations between 2015 and 2017, having told her partner that she needed to travel to the US for life-saving brain cancer treatment.

Concerns have also been raised about racist and other forms of abuse directed at staff.

The report has reignited calls for additional police services on public transport.

But Labour Senator Aodhan O'Riordain has called for a more "holistic" approach to be taken when dealing with the anti-social behaviour of children.

Children as young as 9 causing the most trouble on the Luas © The Journal Aodhan O'Riordain "I have been an advocate for transport police on the DART line, as well as the Luas line but at the same time, I think that when a politician comes to this discussion and only has a policing answer then we're really missing the point," he told Newstalk's Ciara Kelly this afternoon.

"I would have spent a long time teaching in an area of disadvantage in the north inner city and I've come to the conclusion a long time ago that a society that produces a nine-year-old who causes a huge amount of anti-social behaviour issues, that's a question for society to have.

Children as young as five should be given lessons in how to deal with the onslaught of adverts hurled at them, a government inquiry has found. The inquiry into the commercialisation of childhood revealed that firms spend at least £100bn each year advertising to children in the UK.

"So if the only answer we have is a policing one, that's not going to get to the nub of the issue."

He added that he felt criminalising children would be a "knee-jerk" reaction.

"I think we have to have a look in a holistic way about how our society is structured," he said.

"Stamping a young person with an Asbo...in certain circumstances that young person can decide, 'right, someone has stamped me with an identity and I'm going to fulfill that identity' in a very negative way," he said.
