Feud target Alan Hutch was rushed to hospital after he was stabbed in the arm and face in Dublin on Thursday morning.

The 33-year-old, who was only released from prison a month ago, was attacked in the city centre at around 7am.

A man was taken to Mountjoy Garda Station in relation to the incident but was later released without charge.

It is believed the incident was not connected to the ongoing feud.

Hutch was taken to the Mater Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Earlier this month his brother Ross Hutch, the 25-year-old nephew of Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch, was punched repeatedly in the face and suffered other injuries after being targeted in the early hours in the north inner city.

Gardai were called to the Mater Hospital as a precaution when he arrived for treatment, and it is believed the Dubliner refused to engage with officers when they turned up.

This latest assault is the fourth time in 10 months that Ross Hutch, the son of murder victim Eddie Hutch Snr and cousin of murder victims Gary and Gareth Hutch, has been singled out for attack and beaten up.

On June 23 he was treated for a suspected broken nose when he was attacked and headbutted by his brother, Alan, during a jail visit from a female relative.

That incident occurred in Wheatfield Prison.

“Ross made a remark which Alan clearly didn’t take too kindly to, so he stitched Ross a loaf in the nose,” a source told the Herald at the time.

Ross was taken to hospital, where he was treated for a suspected broken nose before being returned to custody.

Alan Hutch (33) was released from Wheatfield earlier this month after serving a sentence for threatening to kill three gardai.

He was driven from the prison by an armed garda escort and has since been spotted in the north inner city near the house where his father was gunned down by the Kinahan cartel last year.
