Seriously injured man found in Rathmullan

It's reported that a man in his late teens has been transferred to Beaumont Hospital in Dublin with severe head injuries after he was found in Rathmullan shortly before 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

Gardai have not issued any statement, but we understand the man was found by a passer by on the beach close to Batt's Lane, and rushed to Letterkenny General Hospital, from where he was brought to Dublin.

It's understood the man had sustained serious head injuries, possibly as a result of an assault which may have taken place some hours previously.
