The frightening incident is believed to have involved two men embroiled in an ongoing Traveller community feud.

Both thought to be in their 20s, the two men reportedly began a brief fist-fight with each other, with one of the men receiving "lacerations to his body", with the other receiving facial injuries, according to Dublin Live.

It's believed that during the fracas, a "corrosive substance" was used during the horrifying ordeal, coming into contact with both men.

Gardai confirmed that no arrests have been made regarding the attack but that an investigation into the incident is still on going.
