By Leigh Mcmanus For Mailonline. Two young Irish girls unleashed a tirade of anti-immigrant abuse at a Mexican man who was speaking Spanish during a phone call in Dublin. A video thread of the disturbing encounter earlier this month was captured by the alleged victim - a man named Dave Monklova - and shared to Twitter, where it has since gone viral. Mr Monklova also shared the footage in a group on Facebook made up of Mexicans living in the Irish capital. He claims the youngsters assaulted him off camera and broke his earphones but in subsequent posts made sure to say that the incident was an isolated one and Ireland has been a largely positive experience for him during his one year living there.
