A man in his 30s has been released without charge following an alleged assault at a house in Tralee on Wednesday night.
Gardai were called to the scene at Killeen Woods at around half past ten where they found a man unconscious in the front garden.
He was rushed to Kerry General Hospital where he is in a critical condition this morning.
Two men in their late 20 and early 30s were arrested near the scene – the man in his 30s has been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
The second man remains in custody at Killarney Garda Station.
