In the heart of Dublin, near a school, the incident unfolded around 1:30 p.m., prompting protests in the evening. Demonstrators, expressing their outrage, clashed with law enforcement, resulting in damaged vehicles, a burning bus, and a car on O’Connell Bridge. Justice Minister Helen McEntee condemned the chaos, emphasizing the need to prevent a manipulative faction from exploiting the tragedy.

Superintendent Liam Geraghty, in a media briefing, clarified that the attack appears to be a standalone incident, not necessarily tied to broader issues in the country or city. While a knife was used, details about the injuries remain limited. Geraghty commended the swift action of the public, who intervened early to disarm the assailant.

The injured include a woman in her 30s with serious injuries, a 5-year-old boy, and a 6-year-old girl with less severe injuries. Notably, the boy has been discharged from the hospital.
