A 40-year-old man has been remanded in custody after he was charged with the murder of a man who died following a stabbing at a B&B in Dublin.

Gardai responded to an incident in the early hours of Tuesday morning involving numerous people in the Palmerstown area following a wedding.

Father-of-two Peter Conroy sustained wounds and was rushed to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown where he died.

Terry Connors, who has an address at Drumcairn Drive, Tallaght, had been arrested and held for questioning at Ballyfermot Garda station.

He was brought before Judge Michael Walsh at Dublin District Court today charged with the murder of Mr Conroy on June 9th at Palmerstown Lodge B&B on Kennelsfort Road Lower, Palmerstown, Dublin 20.

Det Inspector Colum O'Malley told Judge Walsh that Connors was charged at Ballyfermot Garda station where he was furnished with a true copy of his charge sheet. When asked under caution if he had any reply Connors said “No.”

His solicitor successfully applied for free legal aid.

Due to the nature of the charge a bail application can only be made in the High Court.

Mr Connors was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on June 17.
