    Missing Irishman Donal O'Sullivan found in stairwell at Bondi

    Missing Irishman Donal O'Sullivan found injured in stairwell at Bondi Junction



    An Irishman who went missing for five days from Bondi Junction in Sydney has been found seriously injured in a stairwell.

    Donal O'Sullivan was last seen leaving the Tea Gardens Hotel in Bronte Road about 10:30am (AEST) on Saturday.

    The 33-year-old failed to return to his home in nearby Allen Parade and concerned relatives reported him missing on Sunday night.

    Last night, he was discovered by a caretaker in the stairwell of a commercial building in Bronte Road, near the intersection with Ebley Street.

    Paramedics were called and he was taken to St Vincent's Hospital where he remains in a serious condition with head and back injuries.

    Police say misadventure may be behind Mr O'Sullivan's injuries but investigations are continuing.

    They will speak to him once his condition improves.

    Mr O'Sullivan's disappearance sparked a search with about 100 people, mainly friends and members of the Irish community, searching Sydney's eastern suburbs for him.

    His housemate, Gavin Fitzgibbon, said he expected Mr O'Sullivan home within half an hour of leaving the hotel on Saturday.

    CCTV footage of Mr O'Sullivan from local businesses was released to the public after an appeal by Mr Fitzgibbon.

    Facebook group formed to find Irishman

    Mr O'Sullivan's brother, Johnnie O'Sullivan, who also lives in Sydney, said he had been searching with family and friends since the weekend.

    More than 800 people also joined a Facebook group dedicated to finding Mr O'Sullivan.

    "Thank God for a happy outcome for once," wrote Bernie Glynn.

    Another supporter, Esther Dixon-Mitchell, wrote: "God bless you speedy recovery thank God."

    Must have been some kind of informant. I'd have preferred an un-happy outcome.

    Guilty: Irishman Padraig Gaffney caused $500,000 damage when he set off a water hydrant flooding a Melbourne Hotel last year

    Prosecutor Kristie Churchill told the Victorian County Court Gaffney had been staying with his girlfriend at the Fraser Place Hotel when they returned about 10pm after a night of heavy drinking.

    What happened next, Gaffney said, was a series of events which have effectively ‘ruined’ the 29-year-old’s life.

    Dazed and confused he woke after midnight on April

    "Drunk Paddy’s $500k flood of tears" screamed the headline, and the jokes were quick to follow.
