GARDAÍ ARE appealing for witnesses to a serious incident in Cork city at the weekend in which a woman in her 30s was allegedly attacked by two men.

The woman was assaulted as she walked home at around 3am on Saturday just off the pathway on the grounds of the Church of the Holy Spirit at Dennehy’s Cross.

Cork sources have indicated she was sexually assaulted and was taken to hospital, but has since been released.
