Another premises in Jobstown was also damaged last night.

Lidl released a statement; "We are aware of the very serious incident at our Fortunestown Lane store this evening".

In a spate of recently-published videos, a huge mob loots a Lidl supermarket in Dublin and then vandalizes it with a giant digger they stole among other things during the notorious Storm Emma blizzards.

Video footage showed looters breaking into the supermarket in Tallaght and making off with goods from within, another video showed some of the looters ripping down part of the walls of the shop with a mechanical digger in what looks like an attempt to steal the store's safe.

A member of Ireland's ruling Fine Gael party, parliamentarian Colm Brophy, said: "I utterly condemn this mindless criminal behaviour that has been carried out in recent hours".

"The type of outrageous behaviour we witnessed tonight has no place in our community".

He said it detracted from the excellent work being done by local community groups and by South Dublin County Council during this current weather crisis. It said it was not in a position to comment further.
