Three gardai assaulted after responding to youth disturbance

Three Gardaí were assaulted when they responded to a disturbance in a Tipperary housing estate last weekend.

It is understood that Gardaí received a report of a large gathering of youths at the scene in Nenagh just before 8pm last Saturday.

Two units went to the scene and attempted to break up a row involving several people that were intoxicated.

Three gardaí were assaulted in the course of the incident.

One Garda reportedly sustained facial injuries and has not yet returned to work following the incident.

Two male youths were arrested at the scene.

The matter is currently under investigation and a file is being considered for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
