Gardai are appealing for witnesses after a man was left with serious head injuries after an alleged assault outside a popular Dublin night spot.

Emergency services were called to the Wright Venue in Airside, Swords, Co. Dublin at 3.40 am this morning and discovered a seriously injured man being attended to by staff from the night club.

The injured man, believed to be in his 30s, was taken by ambulance to Beaumont Hospital

Gardai say he is being treated for 'serious head injuries'.

A Garda investigation is underway and they would like to speak anybody who may have witnessed an altercation between two men outside the club between 3am and 3.30am.
They specifically appealed to the driver of a light or bright coloured taxi who picked up a man on the roadway close to where the injured man was being treated.

There was at least one other occupant in the taxi at the time.

The man who got into the taxi is described as wearing a light coloured short-sleeved t-shirt and dark trousers.
