Youth in Custody After Two Pigs Killed and Brought to Dublin Refugee Site

Dublin: Gardaí have launched an investigation into the killing of two pigs at the Thornton Hall refugee site in north Dublin. A 30-year-old man has been charged with animal cruelty and violence in connection with the incident, which occurred last Wednesday.

This event follows strong protests against the resettlement of migrants in the area. Irish far-right activists recently circulated social media posts referencing the abandonment of a mosque construction project in Spain after pigs were buried on the proposed site, as pigs are considered haram in Islam.

Emergency services were called to the site after receiving reports of trespassing. Upon inspection, they discovered two dead pigs and a piglet and subsequently took the young man into custody. He is scheduled to appear in Swords District Court on Tuesday, July 16.

The majority of international protection applicants arriving in Ireland are from Muslim countries. Gardaí are investigating whether this incident is connected to the planned migrant housing scheme at Thornton Hall.

The government is moving forward with plans to relocate hundreds of refugees to this site, which had previously been identified as a location for a super jail.

Gardaí have appealed to the public for information regarding the incident. Anyone with information is urged to contact Swords Garda Station at 01-6664700 or the Garda confidential phone line at 1800 666 111.
