No arrests in hit-and-run incident

NO ARRESTS have yet been made following a hit and run outside an Adamstown pub last weekend.

Gardai, investigating the case, say they are following a definite line of enquiry in relation to the incident, where a local man sustained serious injuries when he was driven over by a car outside Brad Og's pub in the village.

The incident followed a row inside the pub, before two men, believed to live in Dublin, left and got into a car outside, where the situation escalated when Padraig O'Shea was driven over by the car, which dragged him along the ground.

The 33-year-old father of two was lucky to escape with his life when he was just pulled out of the way by his brother Seamus as the car attempted to reverse back over him as he lay on the ground.

Mr O'Shea, who sustained a fractured arm, broken leg and third degree burns to his back, among other injuries, and underwent surgery in Waterford Regional Hospital last week, is still recovering from his injuries.

Gardai are appealing to anyone who may have information in relation to the case and who have not yet come forward to please contact New Ross Garda Station on 051 421204.
