‘Wild-eyed’: Irish sports star accused of sexual assault engaged in two-day ‘bender’

Reports circulating in the Irish media which suggest that a well-known sportsperson has been accused of sexual assault say that the star, who has remained unnamed, was on a two-day drinking binge in advance of the attack.

The sportsperson at the center of the allegations was seen partying with a large collection of friends in various venues in Dublin last weekend, sources told the Irish Sun.

The newspaper quotes a source, who says: “A big gang of them arrived and were in good form. Everyone was polite on the way in. When staff went back to check on them later in the night (the star) was wild-eyed and looked wired."
