Tributes have been paid to a tragic mum-of-two who died in hospital today after an alleged assault in Dublin city centre on January 20.

Urantsetseg Tserendorj (48), who was originally from Mongolia but working and living and Dublin, was hospitalised on January 20.

She suffered serious injuries following an alleged assault and robbery near Custom House Quay, Dublin 1, at around 9.30pm.

A 15-year-old has since been charged in relation to the incident.

Local Independent councillor Nial Ring said the tragic news brings in to focus the need to tackle knife crime in the area.

“There are over 2,000 Mongolian citizens working in Ireland and a huge number live around the inner city, as did Urantsetseg, and all they want is a better life for themselves and their families. Urantsetseg lived in the area with her daughter (her son moved abroad to study).

“This tragic news again bring into focus the necessity and indeed obligation on us all to tackle this problem. On Monday night Dublin City Councillors backed a motion to get the Minister for Justice to set up a task force on knife crime and demanding that the bill Jim O'Callaghan put before the Dáil recommending doubling of the knife crime/carrying sentence be enacted. It is incumbent on us to follow up and ensure these initiatives are carried out.,” he said.

”Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with the grieving Mongiolian community. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis,” Mr Ring added.
