Two members of the force were brought to Letterkenny University Hospital to be treated for their injuries.

A third Garda was treated at the scene for their injuries.

Two men aged in their 20s were arrested and taken to Milford Garda Station.

They have since been charged and are due to appear before Letterkenny District Court on March 29th.

A third man, aged in his late teens, was arrested for public order offences.

Gardaí say he has since been released without charge pending consideration for the Adult Caution scheme.

A small amount of cocaine was also seized during yesterday's incident.

Gardaí added that a number of fixed penalty notices for breaches of Public Health Regulations will be issued in due course.

Their investigations are ongoing.
