He sustained a stab wound to his back, and was taken to hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Sean Murray, of the Clonard Residents Association, said: “People in the area would wholeheartedly condemn this crime. It’s important that people feel safe here, and incidents like this do nothing to help that.”
