Resident attacked on North Terrace
|Paul Cullen||21/10/2008||Last Saturday night, a local resident of the CIE Estate was attacked when he went to stop a number of men breaking into his car. The victim sustained a beating by a group of four or five and ended up in St James Hospital with rib injuries. Thankfully, he has since come home, bruised and shaken.|
The men involved are thought to be in their late 20s/early 30s. If you have any information about this deplorable crime, please let the gardai at Kilmainham station know at 6669700.

|Paul Cullen||22/10/2008||All I know is that it happened at 2 am on Saturday/Sunday on North Terrace and four/five men were involved. No word on anyone being identified so far.|
|Paul Cullen||23/10/2008||It appears that attack happened in the early morning, after a function ended up at the CIE Sports and Social Club. It would seem that the perpetrators had left this function and were on North Terrace when the incident happen.|
As a result of this crime, a number of local residents are mounting a campaign to have the Wicket Gate closed.
