The Castlepark campsite was grand for parking (€20) & easy to access the gig. Security was heavy we were searched & frisked twice on way in.

    When we got in (around 5pm) it was a bit of a shock. I expected the back field areas around the mobile burger bars to be ok but it was packed. When you're with a young lad in that environment you're on full alert, it felt a bit menacing as many were plainly locked. I was looking for a route in case any fighting broke out, the reality was there wasn't any clear one. About an hour before the main act a lot of people must have moved down towards the stage & a bit of space appeared, I could relax then. Actually there were a few young lads from Swords in front of us who made a lot of my son, fair play to them, nice lads. Downside we were miles from any of the bars & wasn't wading through the crowd with him in tow. Upside was the music, Eminem gave a great show, I was surprised how many of his songs I recognised. Didn't do much by way of chatting with the crowd but we were there for the music so that's ok. One of his crew kept shouting Yo Ireland at the end of every tune which was a bit of a pain. Eminem has some quality music & his lyrics are first rate.

    We headed off at the start of the last song before the encore & we were back in Maynooth an hour after we left the show.

    The lads from Swords were saying that the ambience at the Kings of Leon was much more enjoyable & relaxed. You could have a few beers around Slane beforehand.

    Anyway, was it suitable for the young lad, not for this gig, security was tight getting but not much in evidence inside, well not in around the crowd. I guess a hip hop show will always be a little edgey. I'm delighted that my son got to see him & came home thrilled with his tour t-shirt and the experience. For me that's the main thing. I worked security for Guns 'N' Roses at Slane but I felt as if I was working way more last night. It wasn't the smartest call to bring him. But it worked out okay
    It will always be something that your Son can always say he did with you. Not many kids his age telling his mates about it today.
    Well Done.

    Yes, This happens at big gigs like this. Feck it the guy or girl that put it up could even be a friend of the people in the shot. Once it goes on the internet its out of their control.

It is immense pressure to put on someone, particularly a teenager.

    People and their behaviour have not yet adapted.
    I would consider the pressure on teenagers and young adults to not be performing sexual acts in a field with 80,000 people with cameras a good thing. 16. 17.18. 28. 14. Doesn't matter, she knew what she was doing and anyone who uses the excuse that 'she was drunk/drugged up to the last' is very naive. She was hardly tricked into it and anyone who doesn't know not to get up to that sort of thing in the middle of a concert can't have much to complain about


    On the other side of the coin, we all make mistakes and she'll surely regret this but maybe it'll send a message out to other teenagers to be more careful. Do what you want with who you want but maybe consider the location a bit more carefully, not really rocket science.

    Cyber-bullying articles are gonna rocket now. I checked the hastag on Facebook and apparently she's missing now. It's the family I really feel for in these situations.

We all did feckin stupid things when we were youngsters, thank jaysus there was no camera phones or social media. That said mad as some of the things we did, we grew up in a lot more innocent world it seems. I feel pity for her and her family. That could be anyone's child & you'd be kidding yourself if you think it couldn't be

    I went to Slane when I was 16 and we got up to no good during the day. Nothing along the lines of what happened last weekend but luckily we didn't have camera phones or social media. Unfortunately these types of things will become more of an occurrence.

    She should turn this once in a lifetime event into an opportunity to make some cash and a name for herself in the showbiz and pornstar world.

    It would be better than wallowing in it etc..I know her parents will be mortified but the sooner they accept their daughter is now a major porn star the better.

    She's hit the jackpot.

    Potentially could get messy for retweeters of the picture too if she is 16.

    While we would all like to get high and mighty about the "youth of today" I remember seeing plenty similiar at the likes of the Conna BBQ and Feila in the 90's the only difference being only 2 protagonists in action and no smart phones, our mistakes though of our younger days did not make for public consumption thank God. I've a 15 year old daughter so this is a huge eye opener.

    Agreed but could they possibly decide to pursue a few to send a message to the rest?

    I've seen pictures like this after every major gig/festival. There are facebook groups packed full of such pictures. Perhaps this one went viral because one of the twitterati decided to make a song and dance about it, I don't know.

    Funny how we're allowed talk about this incident involving a likely underage girl of no public interest, but we're not allowed even mention an incident involving three grown adults, two of whom were public figures. Not to mind another reported incident (with photos to booth) of one of those public figures vandalising private property.

    Even doing it in private may not prevent it. A webcam turned on, or a smartphone filming privately in a room, a secret camera....a voice recorder, a spycam...

    There is no defence, especially if someone has drink on board and doesn't have their wits about them.

    As a father of a 6 year old boy and an Uncle to maybe 25 more kids its a worry with all they have to face into in their young lives. So much pressure to dress well, make friends and chase the herd.
    Then when they get to teens its the daunting teenage sex, drink and drugs.
    I put my hand up I was very far from an angel in my youth but at least back then you could use the defence it wasnt me or his full of crap now every detail is looked at.

    Some parents have no sense either allowing their kids to carryon and not expect things to happen. No kid deserves to get picked on by what they wear but a headband as a skirt isnt proper 16 year old attire.

    In my day girls wore big wooly jumpers And boy that was a challenge

    I have a friend who specialises in peeping through closed curtains at lap dancing clubs.

    He's an old fashioned Voyeur.

    One of our legal eagles might confirm for us, but haven't the laws regarding "statutory rape" (I believe that is not actually a term used in any legislation) been toned down since a few years back. Assuming the guy(s) involved are of a similar age there is unlikely to be anything to follow from this Garda investigation. But we'll see.

    Hundreds of internet users have shared the images which show the girl in broad daylight with a man at the Slane venue in Meath on Saturday.

    The girl – who is a secondary school student from the west of Ireland – has been left devastated after the images appeared on social networking sites.
    The matter is now the subject of a garda investigation which is being led by officers based at Navan Garda Station.
    A senior source revealed that gardai have interviewed the teenage girl and have also spoken with her distraught parents.
    At this stage officers have not spoken with others featured in the photographs.
    “This case is at a very early stage but what has happened here is a matter of concern for gardai,” a source said.

    And anyone sharing it on Twitter and Facebook. If she's under 18 that's technically distributing child pornography.
