Gardai have launched an investigation into a vicious attack last night which saw two garda members beaten badly on a street in Co Mayo.
The attack is said to have been carried out by three men who attacked and badly beat up a male and female garda.
The attack occurred in the early hours of this morning in Claremorris, Co Mayo.
The men were taken to Castlebar and Westport garda stations where they’re being questioned over the attack. Gardai have appealed for witnesses to the beating.
Both gardai were rushed to hospital where their conditions are said to be non life threatening and that they were released from hospital today.
