Man has jaw broken following late night attack in Woodquay

Tue, Nov 24, 2015

The brother of a well-known businessman in Galway was the subject of a serious assault over the weekend. Ronan Greaney, whose brother Eugene runs Dough Bros pizza parlour on Abbeygate Street, had his jaw broken in the incident.

Mr Greaney was assaulted outside Woodquay Stores in the early hours of Sunday morning. He had gone to the shop to get cigarettes following a night out at the Galway Christmas Market tent. He encountered two men, and two women outside the shop at around 1.30am. He recalls chatting to the group briefly before suffering a serious blow to the side off the jaw. The suspects are all in their teens and are believed to be between 17 and 19 years old.

Speaking to the Galway Advertiser, Ronan's brother Eugene Greaney, said he returned to their house after the attack and was close to fainting. "I was in bed and he arrived into my room and collapsed on the floor. His mouth was full of blood, I could tell by looking at him that his jaw was broken. I bundled him up and brought him straight to hospital. They also knocked out a few of his bottom teeth. He told me that after it happened, he tried to call 999 but could not remember the number he was so dazed."
