Gardaí are investigating the circumstances around an incident in Lanesboro earlier this week in which three people were allegedly assaulted by a man, who later died in hospital.

  The incident occurred on Monday afternoon when two men, aged in their 70s and 80s, and a woman in her 50s, sustained injuries at two properties in Lanesboro.

  It is believed a man in his 20s, who was known to the female victim, was restrained by a number of bystanders following the incident. Emergency services were alerted and the man was taken by ambulance to University Hospital Galway but subsequently passed away.

  A postmortem was due to take place on Tuesday and the results are likely to impact on the Garda investigation into the matter.
