Stabbing victim in a serious condition after attack in Dublin
A man is undergoing surgery this morning after being stabbed in the Swords area of Dublin in the early hours of this morning.
The victim, who is in his mid 20s was attacked in the Airside retail estate at around 4.25am.
He staggered to the nearby popular Wright Venue nightclub to seek help from staff there.
Gardai and emergency services arrived at the scene quickly and the man, who is from the Blanchardstown area, was rushed to Beaumont Hospital where he was due to undergo surgery.
Sources say the man received "knife wounds to the stomach" in the attack.
Some reports said the victim was partially disembowelled in the attack.
An area of the car park in front of the Wright Venue was sealed off by Gardai this morning, and detectives were seen carrying out an initial assessment of the scene.
The actual location where the man was stabbed was not known, but CCTV is set to be examined as part of the investigation into the attack.
