Four men were involved in a fight on the grounds of DkIT yesterday

A 23-year-old man was arrested on the grounds of DkIT yesterday following an incident involving a group of men. 

Gardai charged the 23-year-old with possession of a hammer after they responded to a callout about a group of men fighting on the campus. 

The incident took place at 4:30pm. It is not known whether the men involved were students of DkIT. 

As rag week runs at DkIT this week, Dundalk gardai said they have "increased patrols" at DkIT and the surrounding estates. 

A garda spokesperson said: "Whilst we hope that students enjoy rag week, we would ask that everyone engages in a lawful manner."
