Cíara Spain By Cíara Spain - December 7, 2017

Gardaí are currently investigating an incident whereby an Irish Rail security personnel was the victim of assault and false imprisonment.

The incident occurred at approximately 5am on December 5th, at Kilbricken, Mountrath, Co. Laois.

The victim is a member of the security personnel employed at the Irish Rail compound in the area.

The attack took place when the victim, who arrived for work, was approached by a number of men who proceeded to assault him.

They then locked the man into the boot of his car before making their escape.


Gardaí believe there were at least three male assailants to the crime, and trust the attackers made off in a car as the compound is situated in a rural area.

Anyone who may have witnessed unusual activity in the vicinity are asked to contact Portlaoise Garda Station on 057 8674100 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.

When I'm not at my desk you'll find me hiding behind a lens, a book or attending GAA games across the country. If not, I'll be busy complaining about the weather!

Also – I’m a festival lover, so when the summers out I spend most of my time nestled in the sweaty trench of any concert hall that will let me in the doors...

Standard and basic – enjoy :)
