Gardaí say they do not have a description of the alleged attackers.

Gardaí have launched an investigation after three young girls were allegedly seriously sexually assaulted in Wexford over the weekend.

Investigators say this a serious and sensitive case which allegedly took place at around 12:15am on Sunday morning in the Burrow area of Courtown Harbour in Gorey.

They’re appealing for anyone who was in the area on Saturday night and noticed suspicious behaviour, to come forward.

Last night gardaí said that they did not have a description of the alleged attackers.

“Each of the alleged victims was subjected to a different type of sexual assault,” a senior source told the Irish Independent.

“The alleged victims are fully co-operating with the investigation which is being treated in the most sensitive way,” the source added.

“Gardaí are investigating an incident of a serious nature that is reported to have occurred on Sunday at approximately 12.15am in the Burrow area of Courtown Harbour, Gorey, Co Wexford,” a Garda spokesman said.

“Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have information, particularly anyone who was in the Burrow area between 10pm on Saturday and 2am on Sunday who observed any suspicious behaviour,” the spokesman added.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact gardaí in Gorey on 053 943 0690 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.

“Due to the sensitive nature of the incident no further information is currently available.

“Investigations are ongoing,” the spokesman added.
