A vicious fight broke out between hordes of Algerians and Georgian migrants housed at a luxury hotel in Ireland on New Year’s Day. The brawl, which included over 20 migrants, led to several of them being stabbed. One victim was left with his finger hanging off.
Hotel Killarney in Co Kerry is being used to house more than 400 migrants, more than half of whom are believed to be men of about 13 different nationalities.
The hotel, which bills itself as one of the top quality family hotels in Ireland, comes equipt with a heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, toddler pools, and fully equipped gym. In addition, there are two restaurants, a game room, an arcade, suites, and rooms with a Digital TV and 70+ channels.
The violence occurred on New Year’s Day at the Hotel and was sparked by a dispute. Police were called to settle the dispute, which led to removing an illegal visitor from another migrant housing center. After the authorities left, the stabbings took place.
Eights migrant men were arrested and appeared before Killarney District Court charged with violent disorder on Sunday evening, January 1. Seven of the eight accused were granted bail. The men who received bail are:
- Rabah Kouchih (31)
- Allal Bazizt (27)
- Zurabi Muqtiashvili (36)
- Mounir Fadli (34)
- Rabah Kouchih (31)
- Giorgi Basharadze (33)
- Levani Guliashvili (32)
- Amiran Meparishvili (36)
The State objected to bail in the case of 27-year-old Fouad Mekhazni, originally from Algeria and being housed at Hotel Killarney for the past two months. An Arabic interpreter was needed for Mekhazni.
Mekhazni, who is charged with both violent disorder and producing a knife, is alleged to have stabbed a number of the other migrants during an argument. Each of the migrants who were stabbed required hospitalization.
“Mr. Mekhazni arrived in Ireland on December 26, 2021, the court heard. He arrived without any documentation, and Gardaí are trying to establish his identity and history through fingerprints, with the help of Interpol. They established he had traveled from Algeria to France and then to Dublin and must have had documentation to travel to France,” reported The Independent.
Mekhazni has lived with his wife and newborn baby in the hotel. He was applying for asylum, claiming he was being threatened in his own country.
Cllr Niall O’Callaghan, a hotelier, said, “a lot of people upset” in Killarney, the small town, about hotels being used for unvetted and possibly dangerous illegals being housed.
He told the Irish Mirror: “We pride ourselves on being a family-orientated and tourist town, so stories like these don’t help.”
Furthermore, many of the community members worry about their safety. The migrants housed in the community are mainly military-age men who are dangerous people with values and ambitions in staunch opposition to Western values and laws.
Politicians Unfazed by Migrant Violence
Instead of Irish politicians being outraged that illegals are being brought to their towns, they complain that they should expedite the processing of migrants and supply them with less crowded housing. The Irish Mirror reports,
Fianna Fail Mayor Niall Kelleher urged Integration Minister Roderic O’Gorman to re-examine how those seeking asylum are housed.
He said the tensions of having so many in one hotel “have turned into the shocking reports we’ve seen”.
Kerry TD Michael Healy Rae said he has previously raised concerns about the length of time it takes to process an asylum seeker’s application.
He added: “I believe that should be vastly improved and speeded up.
Migrants continue to be exploited by the left to dilute host cultures, ensure they receive more votes and help to consolidate their power.
