Owen Osifa was hosting a party at her home in Lucan, Co Dublin on Friday evening for her teenage daughter’s birthday.
A DJ was hired for the event which was only meant to involve around a dozen girls.
However an invite to the party was posted on the social networking site Facebook and news of the event went viral.
Mrs Osifa described how around 250 teenagers, most of them under the age of 18, gatecrashed her daughter’s party and ransacked her house in the Foxdene estate.
A knife was put up to the throat of Mrs Osifa’s husband Igosa as he tried to prevent a gang of youths from ripping a television off his wall.
A bottle was also smashed over Mr Osifa’s head.
Must have been some bottle to pixellate his face so badly.
