The witness told Dublin Live: “Students were frightened and shocked and librarians were unable to take control of the situation. Ambulances were present and gardaí later I have been told,” they added. A spokesman for Fingal County Council which runs Blanchardstown Library confirmed to Dublin Live that there was a “disturbance” at the library last night,” reports DublinLive.
