Gardaí are investigating allegations of a number of alleged sexual assaults on teenage girls near Sligo Town over the weekend.

It’s reported that a house and part of a GAA grounds at Ballydoogan have been sealed off as potential crime scenes.

Two teenagers alleged they were assaulted between 8pm and 10pm on Saturday night.

Gardaí are keen to speak to anyone who was in the Ballydoogan, Oakfield and Maugheraboy areas of Sligo, between 8pm – 10pm and who noticed any activity which caught their attention, whether they think it may be of relevance or not.

Any road user who may have been travelling through these areas and who may have dash-cam footage is also asked to make this available to Gardaí.

In addition, Gardaí are making an appeal to taxi drivers who were working at the time and who may have taken a fare from Sligo to Manorhamilton, to come forward.

Anyone with any information in relation to this matter is asked to contact Sligo Garda Station on 071 915700, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
