Moral panic 'fizzled out' of Dungarvan after gardaí arrested woman over alleged false statement
A report by
Eoghan Dalton
Disinformation experts say the town is a textbook example of how the far-right attempts to exploit incidents.
Rumours circulated in recent weeks claiming that attacks were carried out in the town centre by migrant men.
In an unusual statement, gardaí said they were not aware of "any alleged spate of attacks by foreign nationals” and arrested a woman alleging she had "knowingly made a false report" about an incident.
Eoghan Dalton reports from Dungarvan on how locals feel about their town being the latest to become the centre of a national issue.
