Gardaí have arrested four men in connection with an assault on a football referee in Co Offaly.
Daniel Sweeney was left with a number of injuries - including a broken jaw - after being attacked following the game between Horseleap United and Mullingar Town earlier this month.
Three Mullingar players were given 40-year bans from all football activity following the incident.
This morning, gardaí investigating the assault arrested a man in his forties, a teenager and two men in their twenties.
They can be questioned for up to 24 hours.
