Appeal Launched Over Dublin 'Serious' Assault

An appeal has been launched into a Dublin assault that left a man in his 30s needing treatment for serious head injuries.

Gardai at Pearse Street, Dublin, are investigating the assault, which occurred at approximately 10pm on the night of Saturday 14 November, and they have called for the public's assistance into the case.

The assault occurred on the night of the Ireland versus France soccer match at Croke Park.

The incident took place at a car park on Werburgh Street in Dublin. The man in his late 30’s received head injuries in the course of the incident and was taken to St James’ Hospital. He was later transferred to Beaumont Hospital.

Gardai are anxious to speak to taxi drivers who were in either the Werburg Sreet, Castle Street, Bride Street or Christchurch area between 9.30pm and 10.30pm who may have witnessed the incident. They are asking anyone who may have information to contact the incident room at Pearse Street Garda Station at 01 6669000, the Garda Confidential Line 1-800-666-111 or any Garda Station.

Meanwhile, Gardai in the Arklow area of County Wicklow investigating the murder of John Deasy are renewing their appeal for information.

They are particularly interested in establishing the identity of a male fitting the following description: he is believed to be up to 6’4" in height, of thin athletic build, with a non descript accent.

He was wearing a light blue cotton mask, and a black or dark coloured waist length shiny jacket or wind sheeter.

Gardai are appealing to anyone with information to contact Arklow Garda Station on 0404-32304, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
