Gardaí say they're following a definite line of inquiry and are not looking for anyone in connection to the incident.
In a statement, Justice Minister Helen McEntee said she's "deeply shocked" by the attack.
She said, "all our thoughts are with those injured, especially with the children, their parents and families, during this extremely difficult period.
"I have been briefed by the Garda Commissioner and will remain in close contact with him and senior Gardaí.
"This attack has shocked us all, and I have no doubt that the person responsible will be brought to justice.
However, my thoughts now are with the innocent children and the woman who have been attacked, their families, and those who are caring for them at this time."
