A man arrested in connection with a serious assault incident in Carlow on Sunday is due to reappear in Carlow District Court this morning.

The man was charged and appeared before a special sitting of Carlow District Court yesterday evening.

In an earlier statement, gardaí in Carlow had issued an appeal for witnesses following the incident.

“Shortly after 6.45pm gardaí were called to an incident on Barrow Track in Carlow Town where two men (aged in their 40s and 50s) were discovered with apparent stab wounds,” gardai said.

“They were taken by ambulance to St Luke's General Hospital, Kilkenny for treatment. Their injuries are described as serious.

“A man in his 50s has since been arrested by investigating Gardaí and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Carlow Garda Station. The scene is preserved for forensic examination.”

They added: “Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to come forward. They are particularly appealing to anyone with video footage from the footpath at Barrow Track at the time of the incident to make it available to them."
