RTÉ presenter, Eoghan McDermott, took to social media yesterday to thank his fans and followers for their support after he was the victim of an unprovoked attack earlier this week.

Updating Twitter the morning after the assault, the 33-year-old Limerick-native explained that he had required medical attention after getting knocked unconscious the previous night.

"Some coward jumped me from behind as I was walking down the road last night, got knocked unconscious," Eoghan wrote on Tuesday. "Brain scan, concussion. I'll find you!"

The following day, the popular broadcaster took to Twitter once again to thank fans and update them on the situation.

"Thanks for all the kind msgs. Rough today, lots of nausea, vomiting, shooting headaches," he explained in a post.

Assuring fans he would be pursuing the matter with the help of the Gardaí, he added: "Will speak to Gardai soon as I can leave the house."

"Awful what happened to you Eoghan, hope you recover quickly. Hopefully CCTV will get the low life's who did that," responded one fan.

"So sorry to hear that. Not exactly the Christmas Spirit, but happy to hear u are ok & sending speedy recovery vibes to you," added another. (sic)
