TWO TEENS HAVE been arrested in connection with an incident in which a garda car was rammed in a Dublin housing estate, injuring a female garda.

At 3.25 this morning gardaí in Swords, responded to a report of a car acting suspiciously in the Cian Lea estate. When they arrived, they observed a white Nissan Micra fitting the description.

The Micra drove at the garda car, ramming it and injuring a garda. The female officer, aged in her 20s, sustained a serious head wound and was taken to Beaumont Hospital where she is currently awaiting surgery.

The car was later recovered near Talbot Hall by gardaí responding to burglaries.

Following a search of the immediate area by garda units, two males in their late teens were arrested and taken to Coolock Garda Station where they are currently detained.
