    Lots of negative stories about drunk immigrants refugees etc., causing trouble, scaring people

    More trouble violence at Hotel Killarney

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,525 ✭✭✭✭ ejmaztec

    Five injured in suspected stabbings at Hotel Killarney (

    "Up to six ambulances have been deployed and at least one person has already been admitted to UHK Tralee with suspected stab wounds, according to sources."

    The health service is stretched enough without this carry on.😏

    There are multiple threads in After Hours or Current Affairs forums to discuss the right & wrongs of direct provision and other means of dealing with refugees. Go discuss that subject there to your hearts content.

    This thread is specifically related to local issues in Killarney. Any breaches of this simple rule will earn you a thread ban. Sweeping generalisations and racist remarks will, as always earn you a ban. This is not new.

    There is a link just above your post to a report in the Examiner.

    The incident is also covered in The Irish Times and is the lead story on the RTE website.

    That the type of comment that does nothing for this issue

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,480 ✭✭✭ FourFourRED

    I live next door to the hotel and walk past it most nights to go to the shop. Won’t be doing it again. Would feel much safer driving. Such a shame.

    Pretty sure there are children’s swimming classes ongoing in that “hotel” too. I assume that will have to come to an end. It’s not safe.

    Botty has been vocal about the potential issues arising and he has been proven right unfortunately. He was also on the radio today saying that something needs to be done now before things start to get even worse or whatever this feud is escalates.

    As an aside, I thought there was only Ukrainian refugees in that hotel after the previous issues and protests about bus loads of men being dropped there. Can't imagine it's much fun for the kids who have to stay there to be surrounded by all this.

    Was a main news topic on news at 6 on rté 1. I suppose that's your restriction of discussion theory blown up.

    Said the hotel was returning to general use later in the year

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,525 ✭✭✭✭ ejmaztec

    There is a restriction on discussion to deter the usual suspects from winding up the pitchfork brigade:

    FB - "Radio Kerry limited who can comment on this post". Radio Kerry always seems to be petrified when a story such as this pops up, and they may as well have not posted anything on Facebook at all. 🤐

    The Examiner had the same restriction earlier in the day, but now seem to have decided to let the dogs out.

    A sad state of affairs if true.

    What a mess that is being made
