A Roscommon Garda is believed to be recovering at home after receiving a concussion after being seriously assaulted in Co Cavan yesterday.
It happened at 2am in Blacklion, when Garda Padraig Scott, from Tulsk stopped a car.
The 29-year-old had a gun pointed at him and was attacked and doused in petrol.
The Star newspaper reports that it is the third attack the garda has suffered since joining the force six years ago.
It's also reported that the inter-county footballer was discharged from the hospital late last night and is now recovering at home from his injuries.
Stephen Breen, the crime editor with The Irish Sun, says the gardai are still trying to establish a motive.
