A PENSIONER suffered life threatening injuries yesterday when he was attacked while sleeping in his van in a car park in Co Cork.

Christy O’Callaghan, 73, was seriously assaulted by a man, who is known to the Gardai, in the early morning.

According to sources, the elderly man was sleeping in the vehicle at Sleaveen East, in Macroom, Co Cork.

He was dragged from the Toyota Hiace van and viciously beaten in a completely unprovoked attack by a man shortly after midnight.

The pensioner, named locally, suffered a punctured lung as well as serious injuries to his head and body.

The alarm was raised by a local who was passing through the car park which is located near Dunnes Stores and only yards from where Timmy Foley was stabbed to death in his home last October.

The emergency services were alerted and gardai and paramedics were quickly at the scene where Mr O’Callaghan was treated for life-threatening injuries before being taken to Cork University Hospital.

He is currently in Intensive Care where his condition is described as serious but stable.

According to locals, Mr O’Callaghan was a well-known greyhound trainer and well respected in the community.

Gardai arrested a man in his 30’s before taking him to Bandon Garda Station.

Poor man. Hope the scumbag is fucked sideways by 3 large jailhouse rent-boys until his colon meets their testicles.

That's a strange one, I knew Christy fer Donkeys years, a bit of a Willie Mullins look-a-like and just as good a greyhound trainer.
WTF was he doing at 73 sleeping in a van in a car park ?
The man was an Icon in his day in professional greyhound training circles.

Seemingly he was in dispute over the ownership of a house and was living in his van in protest.
Not supposed to be doing too well in hospital.
Nice fella, I remember him well from Thirty odd years back, non drinker/smoker/gambler.
