The Garda Helicopter was in action again last night after a Garda car was rammed in Swords. It happened at 3.30am. One
member of the Garda was injured in the ramming and brought to Beaumont Hospital. It happened in the Cianlea housing estate
close to the Rathbeale Road. The car that rammed the squad car was a White Nissan Micra. The female Garda is believed to have
head injuries. After the ramming the Micra was found at Talbot Hall which is close to Applewood Village and 1 km from Cianlea.
Two men were later arrested and were brought to Coolock Garda Station. The injuries to the Garda happened as she was getting
out of the passenger side of the car and the Nissan car crashed into the door. The glass from the door smashed into her face.
The 2 teenagers who were caught were from the Ballymun area of Dublin. The Garda believe they may have been responsible for
a rake of burglaries in the area in recent times.
