GARDAI said no-one has come forward to make a complaint following a violent incident in Wexford town in which two brothers were attacked.

One of the men was struck with a hurley and kicked while he was on the ground during the attack, which took place in front of a large number of children, in Talbot Green.

The man who was most seriously hurt in the incident was taken away by ambulance in an unconscious state. Both men, said to be in their 30s, were treated at Wexford General Hospital.

The Tuesday lunchtime incident was witnessed by a large group of children who were out playing at the time.

'All the children were terrified. They were screaming,' said a witness.

A garda spokesman said, however, that no complaints had been received from any family members on the date of the assaults or since. What led to the incident is unclear.

'All declined to make written statements,' said the garda spokesman.

A pool of blood was left on the concrete path outside TG's Takeaway following the incident which was responded to by a large number of gardai and a forensic team.

Earlier this year, community leaders in Talbot Green met the garda superintendent to discuss anti-social behaviour which was said to be blighting the area.
