The queues getting into Dunnes in Dublin today were absolutely outrageous
Some chaotic scenes.
As Storm Emma begins to retreat, many people are seriously feeling the cabin fever and venturing to stores in the dozens with the hopes of replenishing the supplies and getting some well needed time outside of the house.
But it looks like EVERYONE has the exact same idea, as this footage captured today in CityWest, Dublin, shows hundreds of people filling the shopping centre aisles waiting for Dunnes to reopen.

Crowds were so big, the store decided to only leave people in 50 at a time and bread was limited to one loaf per person and no cigarettes were for sale.
The crowds were so large, a sing-song even began to break out within the shopping centre as everyone was in good cheer as they awaited to enter the store.

The shopping centre were this footage was captured is also only minutes away from the Lidl store on Fortunestown Lane which was victim to a dramatic looting last night, which sparked the arrival of hundreds of people and causing substantial damage.
A criminal investigation is currently underway and arrests have been made.
