Gardai probe horror video showing migrants fleeing from chasing car in Blessington

GARDAI are carrying out inquiries following the circulation of a horrific video in which a thug drives a vehicle at speed towards people believed to be migrants as they flee through a field.

It has been claimed online that the video was recorded in the Blessington area of Wicklow on Wednesday.

In the 34-second clip, the driver and an associate can be heard screaming: “Get out, youse b***ards. Get Out!”

Sickeningly, the pair can be heard laughing as the terrified people flee in fear of their lives.

The video has again raised concerns for the safety of immigrants in the county where tensions over an International Protection Application Services (IPAS) accommodation centre remain high.

“This is absolutely horrific,” one person who posted the video wrote.

“Two bigots thinks its funny to attempt to mow down several migrants in a field.

“This is supposed to be in Blessington, Co. Wicklow.

Reminiscent of the KKK in the Us.

“What’s next? Burning crosses and lynchings?”

In a statement issued to the Sunday World earlier today, gardai confirmed they are making inquiries.

“Despite no complaint being received at this time, Gardaí in Wicklow are aware of a video currently in circulation and are making enquiries to establish further details,” a spokesperson said.
