A woman in her 20s, believed to be an American tourist, was attacked shortly after midnight.

Detectives sealed off the area for a forensic examination and have been trawling through CCTV in the area.

They’ve since charged a man in his 30s in relation to the attack and he’s due before Blanchardstown District Court this morning.

However Gardaí are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward.

Anyone who noticed suspicious activity in the vicinity on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning can contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station.
