Nine people were injured after a group of young men fell from a lorry in Co Wicklow yesterday evening.

The incident happened at around 6.30pm in Enniskerry village when members of the local GAA club were celebrating a championship win while on the trailer of an articulated lorry.

Videos of the incident circulating on social media show a number of young men celebrating with a trophy on the back of the vehicle before a barrier gives way and several of them tumble onto the road.

Gardaí say the injured men were taken to Tallaght and St Vincent's University Hospitals for treatment but that their injuries are not life-threatening.

They say inquiries into the incident are ongoing.

In a statement, Enniskerry GAA club said none of the injuries sustained were critical.

They asked people to refrain from sharing videos of the incident out of respect for the injured parties.

Minister for Health Simon Harris said in a tweet that he was: "Thinking of those injured in Enniskerry and their families tonight. Our entire community hopes and prays that everyone will be OK."

The incident happened after Enniskerry beat Avoca in a Junior B championship final.

It is understood that all of those involved are adults.
