Through his Instagram account, Woolley explained what happened. “On the night of August 13, I was returning from dinner with a friend and then we went to a pub for some drinks. When we were returning, on the banks of the Liffey, a group of 8 to 12 young men, between boys and girls, in my twenties, began to beat up several people On this road. Unfortunately I was one of the victims. Someone punched me in the face. Just one punch, moan “I’m sorry, wrong person” and they kept going down, attacking more people.”

“Fortunately, I was able to call an ambulance and became aware. My friends helped me with all this and I am happy to say that everyone is fine. I am currently waiting at St James Hospital for my oral surgery. Thanks again for all your support and messages of encouragement, I hope I recover quickly After difficult months. What a day.”
