There has been an outpouring of sympathy from fans of the Dubliner, with one tweeting "horrible thing to happen. Hope you're on the mend and that they're found and dealt with," while another added "Oh my God! I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope you get well soon bud!"
The 2fm DJ (33) recently put his backing behind the new Pieta House campaign, which aimed to raise awareness of Pieta House's suicide helpline 1800 247 247, a number that will be available 24 hours each day over Christmas.
