A commuter who witnessed the terrifying ordeal shared details of the incident on a local residents' group.

"I just got off the Luas coming home from work and some kids from inside our estate were hiding behind the wall between us and the Belgard Luas stop.

"They were lighting fireworks and throwing them over the wall, regardless of whether they hit a person or a car.

"They narrowly missed a woman who was wheeling her baby in a buggy.

"I dread to think what could've happened to that baby."
