Gardai are aware of a video online which shows a young girl being violently dragged to the ground before being beaten outside a pizza restaurant.

The clip, widely shared on Facebook in the last two days, was reportedly captured in Castletroy, Limerick. It is, however, unclear when the actual incident took place.

In the video, a young girl is filmed grabbing another youngster from behind by the hair.

The assailant drags the young girl to the ground before launching a series of blows.

Eventually an adult intervenes and the attacker screams: "The next time you get cheeky with me I'll murder you, you dirty spring roll."

Another unidentified girl says: "Just wait til she gets around the corner, she has to move from here."

The original attacker then adds: "Don't worry there is going to be another beating coming, you're getting another one."

A number of other youngsters are seen in the clip.
