Gardaí are investigating an alleged assault and two separate public order incidents which took place in Cork over the weekend.

One man was taken to Cork University Hospital (CUH) after an alleged assault on the northside of the city last night.

The incident happened at around 8.30pm on the Liam Healy Road.

Gardaí say two males received non-serious injuries.

No arrests were made and gardaí say investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, gardaí in Douglas say they are continuing their investigations into a public order incident in the Mount Oval area on Saturday night.

Shortly after 8pm, gardaí received a number of reports of an alleged brawl between a group of up to 70 youths.

It followed a number of incidents earlier in the evening when gardaí responded to reports of mass gatherings in Rochestown and Garryduff Woods.

The youths dispersed when members of the force arrived at the scenes.

Gardaí say that no injuries have been reported to them in relation to the incident at Mount Oval.

However, they are investigating a number of videos circulating on social media showing a large-scale disturbance, and are continuing proactive patrols in the area.

Separately, gardaí were also called to a public order incident at Ballynoe Hill in Cobh at around 11.30pm on Saturday night.

A male youth was arrested and has since been released without charge.
