The Taoiseach says an incident at a migrant camp in Ashtown has the hallmarks of a racist attack.
A number of men with sticks and dogs turned up at a makeshift camp of around 15 tents.
Some of the men staying there were allegedly assaulted.
The Taoiseach says Gardaí will fully investigate:
Leo Varadkar described the incident as "very disturbing."
He continued, "I don't have a report from the Gardaí yet but I'm going to seek one."
"I'm always reluctant to comment on something when I dont have the full facts, but it has the feel and look of, essentially, a racist attack."
