FOUR PEOPLE ARE due to appear in court tomorrow following an alleged violent disorder incident in Co Tipperary that left one man hospitalised. 

Gardaí from Clonmel were alerted to reports of a violent disturbance involving a group of people at Cooleens Close in Clonmel on Thursday shortly after 1am. 

Gardaí dispersed the group and arrested one man under the public order act at the scene. He was later charged and released.

Another man required hospital treatment following the incident but has since been discharged. 

In a follow-up operation this morning, members of the Armed Support Unit along with detectives and members of the drugs unit based in Clonmel, searched three houses in the Clonmel area. 

During the searches, three men (aged 30s, 40s and 60s) and a woman (40s) were arrested.

All four are due to appear before a special sitting of Clonmel District Court tomorrow morning at 11.30am.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and in particular to anyone who was in the Cooleens Close area of Clonmel in the early hours of Thursday morning to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Clonmel Garda Station 052-6177640 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
