Gardaí at Anglesea Street were alerted to an incident of assault that occurred at the Boardwalk between the corner of the Grand Parade and South Mall in Cork City at approximately 5pm on Wednesday evening.
One man, whose age was said by the Garda Press Office to be unknown, was removed from the scene by ambulance to hospital.
The man was said to be suffering from “serious injuries”.
A section of the Boardwalk was cordoned off for approximately two hours, with the area behind the War Memorial forensically examined by garda experts.
