A man in his 30s suffered serious head injuries and was rushed to Beaumont Hospital following an assault outside the Wright Venue in Co Dublin in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Gardaí in Dublin are appealing for witnesses to the altercation which they believe was between the injured man and one other man outside the nightclub between 3am and 3.30am on Sunday morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene at 3.40am and found the man being attended to by nightclub staff.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he is being treated for serious head injuries.

The scene has been preserved and a Garda investigation is under way.

“In particular, we would like to speak with 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,” a Garda spokesman said.

It is understood there was at least one other occupant in the taxi at the time.

The man who got into the taxi was said to be wearing a light coloured short-sleeved t-shirt and dark trousers.
