A Laois GAA star has been left with serious head injuries following an altercation in Carlow town in the early hours of Monday morning.

He is understood to be in a serious condition.

Gardaí have confirmed that a man in his 20s was injured in an altercation “involving a number of people” at the Potato Market in Carlow Town shortly after 1am on Monday morning.

In a statement, Laois GAA said it had been made aware of the incident.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and his club that he will make a full recovery,” said the statement.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Justice has offered his support to Mr O’Reilly’s family “at this time of challenge.”
