Several videos of the incident have been circulating  in recent days. In one video, it shows a young man on the ground being punched and kicked in the head repeatedly by six or seven other young men.

Killarney gardaí have told Radio Kerry that they are aware of the footage and are in the process of verifying it. The gardaí are also aware of an incident in the town centre on Saturday evening as officers were called to the incident.

No arrests were made and no serious injuries have been reported from that event and gardaí are assessing the Chapel Place footage to see if it relates to the same incident.
