An attack on a Garda in County Cavan has been labelled 'particularly vicious'.
It's after an officer was assaulted and doused in petrol overnight.
It happened when he stopped a car near Blacklion at around 2 am and a gun was pointed at him.
Chief Reporter with the Irish Mirror, John Hand, says the Garda was then assaulted:
Meanwhile, the local GRA representative has called for harsher punishments that ultimately deter attacks like these from happening in the first instance.
James Morrisroe told Northern Sound that there's an ongoing concern about attacks while on duty.
