Eyre Square assault victim ‘critical but stable’ in Beaumont Hospital

From the Galway City Tribune – A man in this early 30s remains in a ‘critical but stable’ condition at Dublin’s Beaumont Hospital following an assault in Galway City.

The victim is understood to have been the victim of a ‘one punch’ assault in the Eyre Square area on the Wednesday evening of October 12.

Since the incident occurred, Gardaí are understood to have done a detailed trawl of very good quality CCTV footage which was available in the  area.

Gardaí have arrested a man in his early 20s who was charged at a special sitting of Galway District Court in relation to the alleged assault.

He is due to appear at Galway District Court today (Monday) to be charged with assault causing harm, under Section 3 of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act, 1997.

Gardaí have confirmed that they arrested a man in relation to the incident and have appealed for any witnesses to contact them at 091 538000; the Confidential Line on 1800 666111; or any Garda Station.

The injured man was taken by ambulance to University Hospital Galway shortly after the assault occurred in Eyre Square at around 8.30pm.

The following day, October 13, he was transferred to Beaumont Hospital where he was placed in an induced coma as specialists treated him for a bleed to the brain.

His condition this week at Beaumont Hospital is understood to be ‘critical but stable’.
