In Dublin two Gardai came under attack when they approached a number of men on Aylward Green in Finglas at 1.50am this morning.

The male Garda Sergeant received facial injuries and the female Garda suffered a broken wrist – both were taken to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown for treatment.

Two men in their 20s were later arrested and are due in court later.

Two Gardai, a male and a female, were also injured in an altercation with a group of youths in Claremorris in County Mayo early on Sunday morning.

The male officer received hospital treatment before being discharged.

Three young men were later arrested in connection with the incident and are due before a special sitting of Castlebar District Court this afternoon.

Investigations in both cases, are continuing.
