An armed mob, most if not all of them women, besieged a house in north Dublin on Friday evening, pelting a small child with eggs when they answered the door.
The egg barrage brought an adult woman to the door – and she was immediately set upon by the women, who were wielding hammers, golf clubs and according to one report, a snooker ball in a sock.
The savage assault – which sources say was a planned ambush – took place in the Finglas area of the Irish capital on Friday evening.
Shocking footage of the incident shows as many as six women involved in the attack, which starts with one of them calmly knocking on the door.
It’s understood a young child opened the door to and she was immediately attacked with a barrage of eggs.
DublinLive reports that a woman then came out of the house in a bid to stop the attack on the child, and the mob then set on her.
The footage then shows at least four women surrounding the helpless victim and launching a brutal assault on her.

She is seen to be dragged to the ground in between two cars and is repeatedly kicked, punched and beaten with weapons in an attack that lasts up to a minute.
One woman is seen to smack the victim with a hammer around 10 times before most of the mob makes off.
But two women stay on to continue the attack and the victim is repeatedly kicked as she lies on the ground.

The remaining two women finally leave the scene and the victim manages to stagger to her feet.
And, despite being clearly injured by the brutal attack, the victim then tries to chase down the mob — who run from the area.
Dublin police last night said they were called to an incident at the house in Finglas on Friday night.
But a spokesman added no complaints had been received – although they are investigating it.
The spokesman said: "Gardaí attended the scene and spoke to those present.
"No complaint received and no offences disclosed.
