Two of the pedestrians were taken to St James’ Hospital to be treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries. The third man did not require immediate medical attention.

The driver of the car, a man in his 30s, was arrested by Gardaí on suspicion of dangerous driving and taken to Kevin Street Garda Station.
