Anti-racism march planned after attack on Afghan family in Dublin

An anti-racism march is to go ahead in Rathfarnham tomorrow night after a serious attack on an Afghan family in the locality over the weekend.

Two men and a young teen - from the same family - had to be hospitalised after they were attacked last Friday.

The Afghans were cycling on Broadford road near Marlay Park - when they were approached by four men in a blue Peugeot who proceeded to seriously assault them.

The Mayor of South Dublin, Sinn Féin Councillor Sarah Holland, said that the local community wants to send a clear message that they completely condemn the incident.
