A man is to appear in court tomorrow in connection with an alleged violent incident outside the Merchant’s Quay Ireland headquarters on Dublin’s south quays this evening.

A number of gardai responded to an incident outside the drug rehabilitation and homeless shelter around 7pm when a male was allegedly assaulted by another male with a glass bottle.

One man was arrested at the scene and is due to appear in court on Wednesday morning, according to gardai.

A spokesman for Merchants Quay Ireland (MQI) said a staff nurse attended to an injured man outside the facility.

However, he could not say whether the victim or alleged attacker were clients or otherwise known to MQI.
