An elderly man required medical assistance last night after he collapsed in a Dublin park in freezing conditions.
The man - who's in his 80's - was found close to the entrance of Tymon Park in Tallaght.
Two off duty nurses found him lying on the ground close to midnight.
The ground temperature was -4 degrees when firefighters from Dolphins Barn attended the scene.
Dublin Fire Brigade is urging the public to check on elderly neighbours to make sure they're alright during the current cold snap.
