One incident involves an alleged report of assault on a female, which has been widely shared on social media.

The investigation will aim to determine the motive behind these incidents; at this time the incidents are not believed to be racially motivated. Investigations are continuing.

Gardaí said that as this case is currently being investigated, and in consideration of the injured party, it is requested that this online video is not shared further.
