Nine people were injured as a result of a fall of horror during a celebration of GAA tonight.

The people involved were celebrating a local GAA win in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow on a truck at the time.

The pictures show the celebrants holding a trophy and jumping up and down before falling from the back of the truck.

A spokesman for Garda confirmed that the wounded had been taken to hospitals in Tallaght and St Vincent, both in Dublin, for treatment.

He said: "Gardai, in Enniskerry, is investigating an incident in which a group of young men were injured after falling off the trailer of an articulated truck.

"The incident happened in the village of Enniskerry tonight at around 6:30 pm

"It was understood that up to nine people were injured and taken by ambulance to hospitals in Tallaght and St Vincent by ambulance for treatment, and their injuries are not considered a death threat.

"The road has been closed for a short time but has since reopened, and investigations are underway."

Enniskerry GAA Club issued a statement on Facebook following the incident, denouncing "false rumors" and those who shared videos on social networks.

The club said: "After tonight's accident, there were no serious injuries or fatal injuries.

"Some players have serious injuries but everything will be fine."

"We would like people to stop spreading false rumors and sharing videos.

"Thank you all for your concern."
