Gardaí are appealing for witnesses after a man in his 30s was hospitalised in a one-punch assault in Galway last weekend, the Connacht Tribune reports. 

The victim was walking home from the Ed Sheeran concert at Pearse Stadium on Saturday when he was confronted by two men and two women. He was then punched in the head before falling backwards and hitting his head on the path. 

The man was part of a group of three couples who were walking in Lower Salthill around 1am on Sunday. He stayed in University Hospital Galway until Tuesday and is said to be making a good recovery.
