A Garda is still being treated in hospital for concussion after being seriously assaulted in Co Cavan yesterday.

It happened at 2am in Blacklion, when Garda Padraig Scott, from Tulsk in Co Roscommon, stopped a car.

The 29-year-old had a gun pointed at him and was attacked and doused in petrol.

Stephen Breen, the crime editor with The Irish Sun, says the Gardai are still trying to establish a motive.

"On theory is that the guard who was on patrol, he was on his own, he was unarmed ina patrol car may have come across some suspicious activity in the area.

"He went to engage and examine the suspicious activity, and during that there was some kind of altercation.

"He was threatened with a gun, which he can remember in which he has outlined and given some initial details to his colleagues, but because he's suffering from concussion, it's a belief that the guards haven't established the full picture."
