Gardai were last night investigating claims by a 14 year old girl that she was raped in a field. The teenager alleged that she was sexually assaulted on the southside of Limerick City.
Family members contacted officers at 10pm on Monday. Yesterday, an area in a field was examined by Officers from Roxboro Road Garda Station. The girl underwent medical and forensic examination at a Cork hospital yesterday. A garda spokesman said that the matter was being treated as very serious.
