( – The U.S. Embassy in Dublin released a travel warning for “security awareness” for any Americans who are planning on visiting Ireland following the recent attack on an American who was in the country’s capital city.

The travel advisory was published on Tuesday on the embassy website and noted that there has been an increase in incidents as reported by the Irish media, adding that it would be good for all U.S. citizens traveling to Ireland to have “good personal security practices.” The embassy further noted that travelers should always be aware of their surroundings while traveling and they should avoid going out on walks alone, especially at night, and should be “vigilant” so as to avoid cases of robbery and theft.

An earlier travel advisory notice for Ireland was released by the U.S. State Department in October 2022. At the time the Level 1 advisory simply advised travelers to take “normal precautions” while traveling.|

Following last week’s incident when a group of youths had beaten Stephen Termini, 57, who was traveling to Dublin, the man has had to stay in intensive care. Emergency personnel had responded following the incident and the man was taken to Beaumont Hospital for treatment. The assault led to one teenage boy being charged on Sunday afternoon during a Children’s Court special session.

Termini’s son, Mike Rizzuto had stated that his father was intending to permanently move to Ireland as that was where his mother’s ashes were spread and the country was part of their heritage. Termini used to paint murals in Ireland according to Rizzuto’s interview on the Irish national broadcaster RTE.
