According to investigating gardai, a taxi driver came to the aid of the woman.

It is understood the woman was punched in the head by a young male, who then fled in the direction of Mill Lane.

The woman, who sustained minor facial injuries, was brought home by the taxi driver and the gardai say the driver prevented a much more serious assault taking place.
