TWO MEN ARE due in court after a Garda was injured when a patrol car was rammed in Dublin yesterday morning.

It happened in the Glasnevin/Whitehall area when officers were monitoring a jeep in Hillcrest Park at around 6am Thursday.

Two men attempted to gain entry into a house in Whitehall and a shop in Santry but were unsuccessful in both attempts.

At around 6am gardaí signalled for two men in a black 4 X 4 to stop,which it failed to do.

Garda units then followed the vehicle onto Glasnevin Park where it rammed a Garda Patrol car and an officer was injured, but not seriously.

The jeep then fled the scene but it was intercepted a short time later in Ashbourne in Co Meath.

The two men, in their 20s, will appear before Cavan District Court today.
