Clondalkin Celtic FC wants immediate action to be taken, according to The Herald.

The Dublin football team said the bikes are being driven on the full-sized pitch they use at St Cuthbert’s Park.

Coach David McCarthy said the bikes race across the pitch at speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour.

As a result, the team are now renting the grounds of a local college.

Cameras have been installed in the park and the club’s chairman has said they are working with South Dublin County Council to turn the park back into a place where people feel safe.
