Gardaí in Enniscorthy have confirmed that they are investigating a complaint of sexual assault which is reported to have taken place a short distance from the epicentre of the town's night-life in the early hours of a Sunday morning.

The alleged incident is believed to have taken place in Railway Square in the early hours of the morning on July 22, after Enniscorthy's nightspots had emptied out.

Gardaí said that they have received a complaint that a local woman was the victim of a sexual assault and she was subsequently brought to Waterford University Hospital for an examination. A garda spokesman said that they are taking the complaint seriously and that a full investigation into the matter is underway.

It is believed that gardaí are currently trying to work their way through CCTV footage from the locality to establish what exactly occurred. A statement was taken from the woman and the investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to contact Enniscorthy Garda Station.
