MADELINE MULQUEEN, THE model and actress who starred in the Rubberbandits’ Horse Outside video has said she was ‘punched in the face’ by a man in Limerick City last night.

Mulqueen tweeted:

That’s Limerick City when u reject a boy and then he punches you in the face. Hahaha can’t wait to get back to Dublin.

She followed it up with another tweet which read:

I’m ok I hit him harder than he hit me.

Mulqueen has said that she plans on reporting the incident.

The model, who has also starred in Republic of Telly said that she believed the man had added her as a friend on Facebook, and that she left him a “nice happy Xmas mail”:

You’re a very lucky guy today. The guards saw you run away like a coward and I told them to leave you off cos that’s exactly what you are, but they know who you are. The fact you can hit someone, not to mind a girl is the most disgusting trait in a human being. I was being more than polite to you and when things didn’t go your way you hit me in the face. Well, I hope your jaw is just as sore as mine today cos you should never underestimate a girl’s strength you bully. Happy Christmas! x

The tweet linking to the Facebook post has since been deleted.
