Four men have been arrested over an assault which left a referee named Daniel Sweeney, badly injured after an amateur game in the Republic of Ireland.


Sweeney suffered a broken jaw when he was attacked after Mullingar Town played at Horseleap in County Offaly earlier this month.


Police revealed that a teenager, two men in their 20s and

another in his 40s who had been arrested were released yesterday.


A file will be prepared for the director of public prosecutions.


Last week, three Mullingar players were also banned

for 40 years each by the Combined Counties League over the incident.


Another ex-Mullingar player had his lifetime playing ban extended to include all football

activities as well.
