Gardaí in Monaghan are examining an area around Peter’s Lake in the town following an incident.

On Friday, an elderly man arrived home with head injuries after taking the route by Peter’s Lake.

He was brought to Our Lady of Lourde’s Hospital in Drogheda, and subsequently transferred to Beaumont Hospital in Dublin because of his injuries.

Gardaí say they have received no complaint of any assault as of yet, and have not found any evidence of criminality – but are continuing to examine the scene.
