This was the end of one Irish Taxi drivers Forum member’s first shift of the Year:
Picked up 4 east europeans at Aston Quay rank at about 4am. Brought them to Adamstown. One of them grabbed me from behind by the neck. Two others opened the two front door and lashed kicks into my face. One side of my head looks like a potatoe. Got a nasty gash behind my right ear. They didn’t get my cash but they managed to take my notebook laptop from the glove compartment. In hindsight I was complacent. Be careful. Dont make the same mistake! Gaurds in Lucan dealing with it.
