A driver who was attacked in an apparent road rage incident has died, gardaí said today.
The 49-year-old was beaten over the head by another man with a hurley several days ago.
He died yesterday in hospital.
Gardaí said two motorists were involved in a row in the Sandymount area of south Dublin at 7.25pm on Sunday.
The attack happened at the junction of Sandymount Road/Newbridge Avenue and Tritonville Road.
The man suffered serious head injuries and was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital. He was subsequently transferred to Beaumont where he died.
Gardaí appealed for witnesses to contact Irishtown Garda Station.
