POLICE are investigating after a major Irish sports star allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in a Dublin pub on a night out.
The alleged incident took place at around 9pm on Friday – with the woman said to have made a complaint to cops the next morning.
Police have now launched an investigation into the claims made against the star, who hasn’t been named.
They said: “Gardaí in Crumlin are investigating an alleged sexual assault of a woman that occurred, Friday 11th October, 2019 at approximately 9pm on Drimnagh Road, Dublin 12.
“Investigations are ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.”
The sports star is understood to be the same man under investigation after allegedly raping a married woman at a Dublin hotel in December last year, the Irish Mirror reports.
A file on that investigation is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
