Two gardaí injured following separate assaults in Louth

Two men have been arrested and charged in relation to two separate assaults on gardaí in Co Louth.

The first garda officer received injuries to his lip and nose after being punched at a traffic stop yesterday in Dundalk.

In the second incident, another garda officer sustained injuries to her eye socket and had a broken nose at another routine stop.

Only 11 days ago, two gardaí were also assaulted in the same area when a garda was struck by a car on the M1 motorway.

The second garda suffered a concussion and was hospitalised after being attacked during a drugs search in Dundalk.
