It would make you sick to hear of such utter horror, but it appears that society has reached a new low with a couple of 13-yr-old lads brutally attacked and beaten on their first trip alone to the cinema.

Speaking on Claire Byrne Live on Monday night, Adrienne and Paul Campion spoke of how their son Jody was set upon when they went to the cinema on their own for the first time in Liffey Valley, Dublin.

The movie that the boys went to see was booked out so they decided to go home only to run into a gang of thugs around 15 or 16 years old.

Before they knew it, they were brutally punched, kicked and jeered – all of which was recorded and uploaded to social media.

The boys thankfully have no lasting injuries but were hospitalised and shaken from the ordeal. Jody’s parents emotionally appealed for help to anyone who has seen the video or knows anyone involved to send the footage or information to the gardai or to ring the Confidential Line on 1800-66-61-11.
