The Sligo Champion - - FRONT PAGE - By PAUL DEERING

Gar­daí in Sligo are con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the se­ri­ous as­sault of a wo­man in a house in Gar­avogue Vil­las last week.

The Pol­ish na­tional was brought to Sligo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal and was said to have been in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion fol­low­ing an al­leged as­sault at her home.

The wo­man, a mother of two aged 42, was sub­se­quently trans­ferred to the Beau­mont Hos­pi­tal in Dublin where she un­der­went an op­er­a­tion for a bleed on her brain.

It has been re­ported that the wo­man is slowly mak­ing a good re­cov­ery from her in­juries.

Gar­daí are un­der­stood to be mak­ing good progress into their in­ves­ti­ga­tion and are aware of who the al­leged at­tacker is.

Mean­while, the con­di­tion of a wo­man in her 50’s who was knocked down as she crossed the In­ner Re­lief Road on Fri­day morn­ing re­mains in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in the In­ten­sive Care Unit at Sligo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal.

The ac­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 9.10am. The fe­male driver of the car was un­in­jured in the col­li­sion.

The in­jured pedes­trian was taken to Sligo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment, her in­juries were de­scribed as se­ri­ous.

Two lanes of the road was sub­se­quently closed with di­ver­sions in place to al­low for a foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion of the scene to be car­ried out by Gar­daí.

This re­sulted in large tail backs and knock on traf­fic con­ges­tion through­out the city for most of Fri­day.

Sligo Fire Ser­vice also at­tended at the scene and al­lowed use of its Aerial Plat­form for the Gar­dai foren­sics team.

Later in the day, Grattan Street was closed briefly fol­low­ing a re­port of a gas leak.

Units from Sligo and Bal­ly­mote Fire Brigade at­tended but it turned out to be a false alarm with no gas de­tected.

There were also a num­ber of mi­nor ac­ci­dents on Fri­day morn­ing due to frosty and slip­pery con­di­tions.

Tub­ber­curry and Charlestown units at­tended a four ve­hi­cle col­li­sion at Achonry but no se­ri­ous in­juries were re­ported.

On Satur­dayevening three ap­pli­ances two from Sligo and one from Bal­ly­mote at­tended a com­mer­cial fire at Sul­li­van’s bar on The Mall.

No one was in­jured but there was prop­erty dam­aged by fire and smoke, pre­dom­i­nately the stor­age area next to the bar.

The Sligo Fam­ily Re­source Cen­tre, which is ad­ja­cent, was smoke logged from the orig­i­nal fire but the build­ing was not oc­cu­pied at the time

Ac­ci­dent vic­tim is be­ing treated in the ICU of Sligo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal
