Civil unrest kicked off big time in Dublin yesterday when Irish citizens, tired of the rising wave of violent crime that has formed in parallel with the country being flooded with immigrants from Islamic nations, and tired of being patronised and infantilised by their simpering, limp wristed Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and his far left, globalist government finally ran out of patience. The trigger for widespread rioting and violence on the streets of Dublin was the stabbing of three young children and a woman in Parnell Square close to the city centre. Police have detained a man in his 50s, who was also being treated for injuries, and said they were not seeking other suspects although senior officers declined to name the suspect, identify his ethnicity when asked directly to do so, or mention a suspected motive for the crime. However eye witness reports agreed the attacker appeared to be of Arab or North African origin, and this was confirmed later in a police statement to Gript Irish news website.
The incident took place at around 1.30pm on Thursday 23 November, outside a school, Gaelscoil Choláiste Mhuire. Police confirmed that a five-year-old girl, a woman in her 30s and a man in his 50s sustained serious injuries. The girl was receiving emergency medical treatment. A five-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl were treated for less severe injuries. The boy was discharged from hospital after being treated.
In an attempt to play down the immigration connection and shift attention to the rioting that broke out in the aftermath of the incident, Irish justice minister, Helen McEntee, labelled the scenes “intolerable” and said a “thuggish and manipulative element must not be allowed to use an appalling tragedy to wreak havoc”. The garda commissioner, Drew Harris, said a “complete lunatic faction driven by far-right ideology” was behind the disorder.
Supt Liam Geraghty of the Garda Sīochana appealed for anyone having information about the incident, including mobile phone footage of the attack and its aftermath, to contact their nearest police station. He praised the injured woman who had put herself at risk in an effort to protect the children and also bystanders who intervened in what he said was a traumatic and dangerous incident.
An Irish blogger who witnessed the rioting said, "Last I saw, after they’d set police cars, buses and trains alight, as well as an immigration centre and a Holiday Inn, where immigrants were staying, the police called the army in.
