Girl injured in Parnell Square knife attack ‘back in ICU’

A schoolgirl injured in a knife attack in Dublin city centre last November is once again receiving intensive care in hospital, according to a fundraising page set up for her.

The five-year-old girl, two other children and a care worker were injured in the attack in Parnell Square on 23 November.

The two other children and the care worker were discharged from hospital after treatment for their wounds.

An update posted on the fund raising page, ‘Barróg do Chailín Beag (A Hug for a Little Girl),’ said: “We had a bit of a setback and are currently in the ICU once more.

“Bumps in the road, particularly this long one, are to be expected.

“Nevertheless we are still positive and hoping to get back on the ward. Fingers crossed.”

A 50-year-old man has been charged with the attempted murder of the three children and causing serious harm to the care worker, who was hurt while trying to protect them.

Riad Bouchaker, who is of no fixed abode, remains in custody awaiting trial.
