A 41-year-old Canadian tourist who was assaulted in Dublin nine days ago has died in hospital.

Neno Dolmajian, who was from Montreal, was attacked on O'Connell Street in the early hours of 23 June.

He sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Mater Hospital, where he passed away this afternoon.

His parents and sister who had travelled from Canada were at his bedside.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the attack and two men have appeared in court.

Ionut Danca, 24, with an address at Rathdown Square, North Circular Road, in Dublin and 23-year-old Madalin Ghiuzan, with an address at Summerhill Parade in Dublin, have both been charged with assault causing harm to Mr Dolmajian.

Both men have been refused bail at the Dublin District Court and remanded in custody.
