Man dead, two arrested after early morning stabbing in Dublin

A MAN has been killed in an early morning stabbing attack in a County Dublin town.

According to RTE, a 31-year-old man was attacked and killed in Loughlinstown shortly after midnight on Tuesday, October 15th.

The victim, who has not yet been named, is reportedly known to police for a number of minor convictions but is not believed to be involved in any serious criminal activity.

It is understood that the victim, who is a father of two, was stabbed in the chest during an argument between several men as the group stood at the crossroads of Loughlinstown Drive and Cherry Court.

Two men aged in their 30s have since been arrested and are being held at Shankill Garda Station for questioning.

The attack was captured on CCTV by a neighbour, who spoke to RTE News this morning about the incident and said he checked his cameras after noticing the large Garda presence outside the house.

"[In the CCTV] I can see two guys coming on the left side of the road and two guys coming on the right side of the road and they start shouting ... and they start fighting right in front of our house", the man  said.

"It's mad ... 10 metres in front of your house and there's a guy there under the tent ... you have a guy there alive and one minute later you have a guy there who's dead. It's shocking".

Gardaí have appealed for anyone with information to contact Shakill Garda Station on 01 666 5900, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
