The incident happened near Pearse Street in the city centre when the ambulance he was in was attacked.

In a tweet, the Dublin Fire Brigade sent their best wishes to their collegaue:

In response to that tweet, Health Minister Simon Harris branded the attacks as "despicable":

 <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Despicable behaviour.
