Gardaí in Dundalk have cordoned off an area of Clanbrassil Street and the Market Square in the town.
The area at the corner of Eoin’s Bar has been closed off to traffic since early last night and remained that way as of 8.30am this morning.
It is understood that an assault took place, with a man found lying at the scene. He has since been removed to hospital but a forensic examination is due to take place.
More as we get it.
UPDATE: The road has reopened
