A man has been left fighting for his life after an early morning assault.

The 20-year-old remains in a critical condition in Beaumont Hospital after the attack on Pearse Street, Mullingar, at 2.40am on Friday.

Gardai in Mullingar have appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

Two men, aged 20 and 21, and a 19-year-old woman were arrested and later released without charge.

A garda spokesman said a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
