These folks have been around forever(?) I can remember my late wife telling me about them in Ireland, when she was a child. They were just as bad then.

OK. A very simplistic question...If football "Hooligans" can be banned from entering countries to attend football matches...why can't the same laws be applied to these people?

Or, do they need to loot/trash Man U's lockers first? laugh.gif

Don't know if these are the same crew who came through here in May last year on the way from Germany but it sounds like it.

If so they are a bunch of Rathkealers who spend much of there time around Basildon.

Mind boggling amount of money in cars alone, last year when I saw them they were diving a collection of BMW X6's, X5's, Range Rovers, Range Rover Sports and Land Rover Discovery's even a Porsche Cayanne almost all on UK or Northern Irish plates although the odd one was on Republic of Irish plates worst thing they had at the time was a 2007 Mercedes Sprinter van.

The head honcho is a guy called Kerry O'Brien who is a multi-millionaire and speaks pretty good Swedish.

Ha, was filling up my UK car at a petrol station between Gothenburg and Boras today. In pulled a white transit van with a couple of guys in it. I quickly locked the doors. How much do you want for the car, they say. What are you doing here, I say. Were builders, they reply, with an irish accent. Where do you live, they ask. Yeah, right, like I'm going to tell you that. Before morning the car, trailer, chainsaws, wood splitter, dogs, and anything else not bolted down will be long gone.

Have you alerted the media or the police? Swedish people might not know what they are or do.

Forced to work as 'tarmac cowboys': The British men trafficked abroad by Irish slave gangs who make millions from scam projects

Many captives are taken to Sweden and Norway

In terms of ethnicity they are two unrelated groups.

lol i had a group of them come to our house when i first arrived maybe in May, these Irish fellos up at the front door telling me they wanted to do the driveway etc etc for pretty much nothing they said, the dog came running out of the house going crazy at them, i had heard of the Irish bastards so i told them no, they were very surprised by an Aussie being there, they were very insistent though, dodgy guys drove off in the oldest crappiest van i have ever seen. We also had an attempted break in mmmmmmmmm good thing for alarms

Headcases would be a more accurate description.

A few of them are still around in Skåne, Småland and Blekinge.
