Four masked men attack man after ramming his car outside Dublin school yesterday morning

A feud between at least three local families is understood to be the reason behind the attack.

A MAN WAS attacked by a number of men outside a school yesterday morning as an ongoing feud between three local families escalates.

Four men, who were understood to be armed with bats and wearing balaclavas, targeted the intended victim outside a school in the Killinarden Heights area of Tallaght at around 9am.

They had initially rammed his car, forcing his vehicle to mount a pavement near the school. Children making their way to school were visibly distressed by the violent scenes.
