A Dublin woman who led gardai on a high-speed chase along the M50 earlier this month has declared herself and a male friend to be Ballymun’s ‘Bonnie and Clyde’.

Gemma Greene (24), from Coolock, was arrested by gardai last Monday after she livestreamed a lengthy chase from Dublin to Wicklow and back before the pursuit ended in Ballymun.

She is due to appear before Dublin District Court later this month in connection with the incident.

However, Greene yesterday shared a series of clips and videos on social media of herself and a friend from a holiday in Barcelona.

Under a picture of herself and her friend, Greene wrote: ‘Ballymuns [sic] very own Bonnie & Clyde’.


In one clip showing off a rooftop pool area, she can also be heard saying: ‘Not a bad life, darling. This is me for the day.’

In a recent interview, Ms Greene said the high-speed M50 chase started after she was driving out of her estate and spotted a garda and thought he was going to pull her over so she sped off.

“I said I’m not f**king listening to this today. He didn’t even put the blue lights on. He didn’t even pull me to stop. I put the foot down and went for it," she told the Irish Star.

Dozens of garda vehicles joined in the chase along with the Garda helicopter and Greene drove to the Kilmacanogue exit of the N11 before turning around and heading back north towards Ballymun.

During the Instagram livestream, she can be heard singing along to music and boasting about how she’s outrunning gardai in her car.

The chase eventually stopped when Greene’s car stopped at Hampton Wood in Ballymun shortly before 7pm.

A video of the incident shows Greene exiting the vehicle before numerous gardai tackled her to the ground.

She later said the only reason she stopped was because she was running out of fuel.

After her release from custody, she posted laughing emojis at the amount of hits her Instagram page was getting.

“That is mad. 2 million impressions,” she said.
