Six people were arrested following an alleged assault on a garda in Dublin in the early hours of this morning.

Gardaí were called to a house at Redwood Lawn in Tallaght at around 4am after a disturbance at the property was reported.

A garda suffered a serious facial injury during an incident at the house in which gardaí were confronted by a number of people.

The injured garda was taken to Tallaght Hospital for treatment and was later discharged.

Four men and two women, aged in their early 20s to early 50s, were arrested and held at Tallaght Garda Station.

They have all since been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
