More than 100 ravers were discovered by a well-known broadcaster and farmer in his field on Monday as he prepared to take in 30 acres of crop.
Darragh McCullough of Elmgrove Farm said he found over 100 Brazilian people, who had travelled from Dublin to party on his land.
The TV presenter was trying to bring machinery across Gormanston strand in Co Meath to take in 30 acres of spring beans when he came across the crowd at 8am.
Mr McCullough, who posted a video and pictures on social media, said: “I know when I literally landed up and I have a video there of when I landed into the site, the music was off and the guys were already packing away the decks.
“These guys were set up proper, they had bands, they had decks, they had huge amps and speakers.
“This was no messing and I guess a degree of the crowd had dispersed as well.
“When I got to the gate of the field there was a couple of lads down at the gate having a fag or drinking beer or whatever”
Mr McCullough said there is a ruin in “the middle of the field, ideally located for an all-night party” and “overlooking the sea”.
He added: “When I got up there then my jaw hit the ground because I thought maybe there four, five, six, seven lads who had a good night.
“But to be greeted by vans, taxis…I didn’t do a head count obviously but there was at least 100 people there when I got there.
“It could have got ugly but I was amazed that everybody said, ‘Okay, sorry about that’ and they did an about turn and headed for the gate,” he told the Today with Claire Byrne on RTE Radio 1.
“The party was in the ruin and they weren’t out trampling the crop.
“There was an odd beer car around but to be honest a number of the party-goers came prepared with black bin liners and picked up all their rubbish.”
