Two men have been charged with public order offences following an incident on the Leitrim Road in Carrick-on-Shannon yesterday evening (Tuesday, May 14).

The men are seen struggling with one another, throwing punches and damage is caused to a car.

Supt Kevin English said two men who are known to them were arrested and will appear before Sligo District Court this morning.
