Tourist may lose eye after attacking Temple Bar

A tourist who was attacked in Dublin’s Temple Bar on Friday night could lose an eye, it is feared.

The man, who is a Swiss national, had been visiting Dublin and was with a female companion when the attack took place around 9.50pm in the Fownes Street area.

The man, in his 40s, and the woman are believed to have been at a local fast food restaurant prior to the brutal attack and may have had a verbal altercation with a group of younger men.

But after the couple left, the man was attacked a short distance away.

It’s unclear if a weapon was used in the attack, but the man suffered very serious facial injuries and could lose sight in one eye and possibly the eye.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to St James’ Hospital.

His injuries, while very serious, are not life-threatening.

Pearse Street Gardaí are asking anyone with information or footage of the incident to get in touch with them.

As part of the Garda investigation into the incident, CCTV is being captured and reviewed by the fast food chain and in the Temple Bar area.

Anyone with information can contact Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 666 9000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 11 or any Garda Station. Tourist may lose eye after attacking Temple Bar
