Gardai have confirmed that the man killed in a stabbing incident in Dublin this afternoon was Irish.

Earlier reports had suggested the victim was a foreign national.

While earlier the gardai had believed the man was in his 30s they now say he was in his 20s.

His body has been taken to the City Morgue, where a post mortem examination will be carried out tomorrow.

Another man, also in his 20s, remains in St James' Hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Gardaí are appealing for a third man, who it is believed is also in his 20s, seen leaving the house at about 3.20pm, to contact them.

This man is described as 5'6'', of thin build and wearing a dark top which may have been blood stained.
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact Kevin Street Garda Station on 01 666 9400.
