Labour senator John Whelan: 'The Nob Nation team were there and they were part of the banter. It seemed that they engaged Paul Galvin in the banter. An exchange took place but to be I honest I thought it was a skit at first. But then there was a shemozzle and handbags at five paces. I was surprised when the Gardai were called. He seemed to get annoyed when they started jeering at him about Grainne Seoige. He was offside, but it was a question of handbags.'
Anoymous #1- 'There was high jinks. It seemed to get out of hand. One word seemed to borrow another. The guy [Callan?] was shouting 'he hit me, he hit me'. He went outside and phoned the guards. I thought that he was joking. I just said to Paul to calm down down and not to make a fool out of himself. Callan was very upset about it all. It was unnecessary. They were slagging him off about Grainne Seoige. Galvin was silly to get involved and get so irate. They really seemed to get under his skin.'
Anonymous #2- Galvin didn't budge for a second - next thing he comes over all aggressive...he called Callan a 'fucking cunt'. We thought we was joking and that he would start laughing in a while. Galvin then goes to the toilets. Hr comes back up and starts again...next thing he goes to Oliver and goes to headbutt him - it's more of a push than a headbutt. We were saying, 'what the fuck'?
