A Garda has been released from hospital after his patrol car was allegedly rammed in the early hours of this morning.

The injured Garda had to be cut from the car following the incident at McGrory’s Brae, which is located between Ballybofey and Donegal Town.

The Garda Ombudsman Commission has examined the scene, which has just reopened to traffic.
