Gardaí have maintained a presence outside a south Dublin building that was damaged by a group of anti-migrant protesters overnight.
It is understood the building in Ballybrack was targeted as some believed it was being re-purposed to house asylum seekers.
Several windows in the building were smashed.
The Department of Immigration has not confirmed if the building is to be used to accommodate asylum seekers.
Meanwhile, a rock with the message 'Stop Helping Refugees' was thrown through the window of independent Councillor Hugh Lewis' family home in the area on Monday evening.
The Independent Councillor for Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown has previously appealed to people to welcome refugees and asylum seekers – and help them integrate rather than protesting and alienating them.
He said his father was left badly shaken by the incident.

"He's OK now, he was very shook - he described it as like a bomb going off, the noise of the thing," he said.
"He was sitting down trying to relax before bed, and wouldn't expect this to happen at all.
"He's very shook and he had trouble having an appetite the next day, put it that way," he added.
