Irish tourists leaving behind a pile of beer bottles and waste at Auckland's Takapuna Beach

Irish tourists were filmed leaving behind beer bottles and hopping on a crowded beach before a child threatened to hit the head & # 39; of the local people who confronted them.

The incident, which took place on the North Island on Takapuna Beach in New Zealand on Sunday, was captured on camera by Krista Curnow.

She said that the group of about 12 tourists, who spoke with an Irish accent, became violent when she asked them to clean up their mess when they left the beach.

& # 39; Their reaction was actually when we have a problem, then we can pick it up and that's what the advice is for, & # 39; said Mrs. Curnow.

& # 39; I approached the family to ask again if they could not find our country unpleasant during the visit and could collect their waste.

"They became violent and even grandma and the child became involved and said they wanted to beat my head against it. & # 39;

Images showed a young boy, dressed in a wide-brimmed Bunnings Warehouse hat, and approached Ms. Curnow with the announcement: "I'll turn your brains off."

& # 39; That boy's mouth – absolutely disgusting! What kind of role models are the parents who allow this kind of behavior, & # 39; said Ms. Curnow.

We live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, how dare people to come to New Zealand and not respect our country, this is our home. & # 39;

The Irish family later ordered food at a nearby Nandos store before claiming a refund, reported The New Zealand Herald.

Another local claimed that they had confronted the family in a Bunnings Warehouse after watching the video online.

"We just met him in Bunnings Hillsborough … he was wearing the same clothes," the woman wrote on Facebook.
