Burglary suspect hurt
GARDAI are expected to question a man later today after a burglary suspect was hit with a golf club during a break-in. The suspect, in his 20s, was treated at Letterkenny General Hospital for head injuries after an incident in the Glencar area of Co Donegal town in the early hours of yesterday morning.
The home owner used the golf club to defend himself when his house was broken into. Relatives said he was too upset to speak about the incident. The injured man is expected to be released from hospital into garda custody this morning.

Acid thrown in face
A MAN was being treated for serious injuries after acid was thrown in his face while he stood at his front door smoking. The man, who is in his 30s and originally from Poland, was smoking outside his house in the Redwood estate in Hollystown, near Tyrrellstown, west Dublin, at about 6am when the attack occurred.
Another man approached him and threw acid in his face. He sustained serious injuries. Gardai have appealed for witnesses, who can contact them in Blanchardstown at (01) 666 7000, the confidential line at 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
