A woman who fell down the stairs of a popular Dublin pub while wearing a visor has informed her employer she intends to bring a personal injury claim "as the visor made it difficult to see".

The extent of the woman's alleged injuries is not yet known and "the level of damage is currently being assessed", her solicitor said in a letter to the bar.

Gillian Knight, human resources adviser for the Licensed Vintners Association (LVA), the representative body for publicans in Dublin, said the accident happened at a member's premises two weeks ago.
