GARDAÍ IN PEARSE Street have launched an investigation after a man was attacked by a group of people this afternoon. 

Multiple videos have been shared online showing a man running from a group. He is tackled and then set upon by a number of people. 

One of them appears to be armed with a hatchet and one man can be heard shouting “hit him with it” on numerous occasions. Another man can be heard shouting “kill him”. Another video shows another armed with what appears to be a four-inch bread knife.
