WATCH: Shocking Footage Shows Kilkenny Bouncer Standing On Party-Goer's Head
Shocking footage captured outside Matt the Millers pub in Kilkenny on New Year's Eve depicts a bouncer headstamping a partygoer in the street.
The footage has been shared on Facebook, resulting in a Kilkenny pub reporting its own bouncer to Gardai.
The video, believed to have been captured on New Year's Eve, depicts two security staff standing over man who is being held to the ground.
One of the bouncers can then be seen standing on the man's head.
Management of Matt The Millers pub have released the following statement:
We at Matt The Millers have been made aware of a very serious incident that occurred on New Years Eve outside our premises.
Firstly, we wish to say, we are completely disgusted and horrified by the actions of the individuals who were acting completely outside the remit of their engagement as Independent Security Personnel, employed by Tiger Security Ltd. These individuals have been immediately dismissed by Tiger Security Ltd.
We abhor violence of any form and are treating this incident in the most serious manner possible.
We have reported this incident directly to the Gardai ourselves, whom we have met and are complying fully with this investigation. We are also in in direct contact with the other relevant parties.
We thank you for ongoing concern.
