Gript has obtained footage of a confrontation between residents of a migrant camp at Ashtown, North Dublin, and some local men, which took place on Saturday Morning, January 28th.
While Gript cannot exclude the possibility of a second incident later that morning which was subsequently reported in the Irish Times, our video is the only footage of any incident at the Tolka River encampment which has yet been published.
The video depicts a group of what the Irish Times’ Kitty Holland describes as “white Irish” men approaching migrants at the camp, and demanding to know the reason for the occupant’s presence.
However, unlike the report published in the Irish Times this weekend, there is no violence. None of the men who approach the camp are visibly armed. There is no evidence of any dogs present. After some initial hostility in tone, the men and the migrants find some common ground about the migrant’s circumstances, and have an amicable conversation.
Gript has blurred the faces of those in this video to conceal the identities of all those involved. We have made no other edits, and fair warning, some bad language is included:
