An investigation is under way after a serious incident at Tinakilly Country House Hotel in Rathnew, Co Wicklow. Around 11pm a row broke out among about 60 Travellers who were attending a wedding reception at the hotel. GardaĆ­ say a number of those involved in the disturbance were armed. AdvertisementSo far machetes, pick axes, slash-hooks, hatches, wheelbraces and knives have been recovered. It is understood a sawn-off shotgun and pistol were also produced during the row. A large number of gardaĆ­ from Wicklow and Wexford were called and those involved in the brawl fled the scene. The garda helicopter was also dispatched.
