A teenager has been arrested in connection with the murder of a young Dublin man late last year.

James “Jay” Griffin (26) was repeatedly stabbed while at a warehouse rave in the early hours of November 16.

The 26-year-old Ballyfermot man was discovered in a pool of blood at the warehouse unit on O’Casy Avenue in Park West Business Park. 

It is understood he was stabbed a number of times while people were still arriving to the Facebook organised warehouse rave.

Mr Griffin, from Croftwood Park in Ballyfermot, was rushed to Tallaght Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead the next morning. 

Gardai yesterday arrested a young man 'in his late teens', a spokesperson confirmed. 

He was arrested in the Ballyfermot area and is being detained at Ballyfermot Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1884.
