The victim, in his mid-20s, was rushed to St Luke’s Hospital shortly after the incident occurred on John Street in the early hours of Sunday morning. He has since undergone surgery and his condition is described as stable.

Up to four individuals, including one female, may have been involved in the altercation, which took place around 1.30am.

Gardai are now going through the process of evaluating CCTV footage, and are appealing to anyone who may have been in the vicinity at the time to contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 056-7775000.
