While they required medical treatment, police said their injuries were not life-threatening.

Police said a racist motive was one line of enquiry.

When are the PSNI going to get a grip on these racist scum and put them away for good?

Racism in Ireland is a disease that is spreading too quickly. A minority community of immigrants in Irish society are victims of hatred and discrimination. I live in a multicultural suberb in Sydney where all religious and cultural backgrounds respect and support each other. As a recent immigrant from Northern Ireland i am grateful for the warm welcome extended to my family to encourage us to blend into the local community here. I am so disappointed that the same acceptance is not extended to all immigrants back home. Everyone deserves to enjoy freedom and respect in their local community.
