A world-class martial artist from Ireland suffered serious injuries during a random mob attack on the streets of Dublin last week, according to reports.
Jack Woolley, a member of the Irish taekwondo team who recently returned from the Olympics in Japan, says he was ambushed by a group of assailants who were picking fights with unsuspecting revelers in a popular tourist zone.
“Last night (Friday 13th August) I went for a meal with my friend. Followed by a bar for a couple of drinks,” Woolley wrote in an Instagram post. “Heading back along the River Liffey a gang of [roughly] 8-12 men and women in their 20s began violently attacking people along the boardwalk.”
“Unfortunately I was victim to these random attacks as I was just walking bye I was punched in the face by one of these group members.”
Woolley says the assailant claimed ‘my mistake, wrong person’ after a lone punch before running off to hurt “more civilians minding their own business.”
He shared photos of his injuries, which reportedly left him on the brink of consciousness before medics arrived.
Woolley’s face was severely damaged and his clothing was covered in blood from nose to knee.
“I am lucky this is all that happened as there were a handful of us hospitalised and two men stabbed. I’m currently waiting in James’s hospital for mouth surgery,” Woolley explained.
Woolley, who was reportedly the first Irish taekwondo fighter to ever compete in the Olympics, says he has had a “tough couple of months” but hopes to recover soon.
Similar to the the 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake that rocked Haiti, the Taliban is a force of nature causing tectonic shifts under a crumbling Biden Administration lead by the nose by an incompetent Defense Department that has mismanaged the effort in Afghanistan from day one.
