Four masked men attack man after ramming his car outside Dublin school yesterday morning
A feud between at least three local families is understood to be the reason behind the attack.

A MAN WAS attacked by a number of men outside a school yesterday morning as an ongoing feud between three local families escalates.

Four men, who were understood to be armed with bats and wearing balaclavas, targeted the intended victim outside a school in the Killinarden Heights area of Tallaght at around 9am.

They had initially rammed his car, forcing his vehicle to mount a pavement near the school. Children making their way to school were visibly distressed by the violent scenes.

The victim has yet to make a complaint to the gardaí. Officers believe that the attack was linked to a feud between at least three families in the Tallaght area.


Gardaí confirmed that they are investigating the incident.

A spokesman said: “Gardaí at Tallaght are investigating an incident which occurred at approximately 9am yesterday morning in the Killinarden Heights area. Two cars were involved in a collision , the male driver of one of the cars was assaulted by a number of men from the second car.

“No arrests have been made and Gardaí from Tallaght are continuing their investigations.”
