Four male teenagers were arrested earlier today in Kilkenny City and are being questioned in connection with a sexual assault at Courtown Harbour in Wexford last July.

All four are not locals, but have Kilkenny city as their usual base.

Gardaí are investigating a serious sexual assault that was reported to have occurred on July 28 at approximately 12:15 am in the Burrow area of Courtown Harbour, Co. Wexford.

Four male teenagers (one adult and three juveniles) have been arrested on suspicion of rape. They are being detained at Kilkenny and Waterford Garda Stations.

All four males are being detained in Garda Stations in the South East under section 4 Criminal Justice Act 1994.

Three young girls from Dublin, who were holidaying at Courtown, were raped on that occasion when fifteen people were present.
