Gardaí are appealing for witnesses following a serious assault near the Meath/Dublin border last weekend.

A man in his 30s was hospitalised after he was attacked on Main Street in Mulhuddart Village in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Anyone with any information or who was in the area between 4am and 5am on the morning in question is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 666 7000, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.

Gardaí are particularly seeking information in relation to a dark coloured jeep which was seen in the area before and after the assault.
