A THIRD MAN has been arrested in connection with an assault that happened in Fairview Strand, Dublin 3 on Monday night. 

The man (20s) is currently detained at Clontarf Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

The incident occurred late Monday evening, where a man in his 60s was assaulted by a number of individuals.

Gardaí were called to the scene at just after 11pm, and found the man unconscious. He was then taken to the Mater Hospital where he was treated for serious injuries.

Another man in his 20s was arrested at the scene that night. A second man in his 20s was arrested yesterday. 

These two men have since been released. A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
