A boy who was attacked by a husky-type dog as he played hurling on a GAA pitch has settled his High Court action for €95,000.

Aaron Heavey-Sharpe suffered multiple lacerations to his lower legs and has been left with permanent and significant scarring after the attack by the Alaskan Malamute dog, Mr Justice Paul Coffey was told.

The boy’s counsel Gabriel Gavigan SC, instructed by Feargal White solicitor, told the court Aaron was on the pitch when the dog ran onto the grass and attacked and bit him savagely.

The court heard that liability was admitted in the case.
