David Young

SIX people were arrested after a Garda officer sustained a serious injury in an assault.

The incident happened at a house in Tallaght, south Dublin in the early hours.


Gardai were called to the property at Redwood Lawn at around 4am following a report of a disturbance.


A Garda spokesman said when officers arrived and entered the house they were confronted by a number of people and the male Garda was assaulted.


He sustained a serious facial injury.


The officer was taken to Tallaght Hospital for treatment. He has since been released from hospital.


Six people - two women and four men with ages ranging from early 20s to early 50s - were detained at the scene of the disturbance.


They were later released without charge. Garda said a file would be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
