A 25-year-old man from Glasnevin has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison after being convicted of sexual assault and possession of a controlled drug.
Ryan Lee Thomas pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to three counts of sexual assault and two counts of controlled drug possession.
The court heard that Thomas sexually assaulted three women on three separate occasions on December 30 2016.
It has been established that Thomas was under the influence of GBL when the assaults took place.
It is understood that Thomas assaulted a woman at a house party on Lower Gardiner Street. Later that same night, he grabbed a woman's breasts on the same street before accosting another young woman on Thomas Street.
He was arrested by Gardaí following the third incident.
While Thomas has pleaded guilty, he claims he cannot remember the events of the night.
The defendant's barrister, Cathal McGreal BL, says Thomas has extended his apologies to the victims of his crimes.
A number of Gardaí have been hospitalised over the Bank Holiday weekend following separate assaults around the country.
In the early hours of Easter Sunday morning, two Gardai – one male, one female – were attacked in Claremorris Co Mayo after responding to an incident in the area.
It is understood the attack, which was carried out by three men, was particularly savage, with both officers requiring treatment for their injuries in Mayo University Hospital.
According to reports, the three men at the centre of the attack were arrested and held under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.
Following Sunday morning's assault in the West, two gardaí were attacked in Dublin in the early hours of this morning.
The Irish Times reports that a female garda sustained a broken wrist while a male officer sustained facial injuries during an altercation in the Finglas area of the capital.
Both gardaí were treated for their injuries in Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown today while two men in their 20s were arrested in connection with the incident.
It is understood both men will appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning.
