Gardai are hoping to speak to people in the Church Street area last night

Gardaí have made a special appeal for information following a fatal assault in Athlone last night.

A man in his 40s died following an incident that occurred in the early hours of Saturday.

In particular, Gardaí are wishing to speak with anyone who may have been at the taxi rank waiting area on Church Street in Athlone between 2.15am and 3am this morning, Saturday, 13th August 2022.



Anyone who may have provided assistance to the injured party is asked to make contact with Gardaí.



Gardaí are also seeking to identify the owners of vehicles parked in the area and drivers who drove through Church Street between 2.15am and 3am, and who may have witnessed the incident. Anyone with video footage or dash-cam is also requested to make this available to the investigation team.


Gardaí can be contacted at Athlone Garda Station on ‪090 6492600‬, the Garda Confidential Line on ‪1800 666 111‬, or any Garda Station.


A post-mortem has been scheduled to place later today at Portiuncula University Hospital, Ballinasloe. The results of this post-mortem will determine the course of the investigation.

No arrests have been made.
