on August 14 when a group of young teens and men boarded the bus. The group sat behind Sheehan and his friends and immediately subjected them to antigay slurs like “‘queer’ ‘emo freak’ ‘f*gg*t’ to name a few,” Sheehan wrote in a post on Facebook describing the incident.

Sheehan told the Irish Examiner he and his friends decided to get off the bus and take a taxi the rest of the way home. The taunts continued before the next stop, though, and Sheehan eventually turned and told the group to act their age.
