 A young man has died after being stabbed during a street row in Tallaght this evening.

The victim, who is believed to be 25-years-old, suffered “catastrophic injuries” in the assault which happened on a street at Mac Uilliam Road.

It is understood that he was stabbed in the neck and suffered major blood loss.

While no arrests have been made, gardai are following a definite line of enquiry and believe the stabbing may be linked to an earlier row in the locality.

The suspect is understood to have had a Jack Russell dog with him when the attack happened.

It is understood that the suspect and the victim were previously known to each other.

A large number of public order units from across the city’s southside rushed to the area and detectives at the scene gave CPR to the victim.

“The situation was hostile at the scene in the aftermath of the assault but it got resolved,” a source told Independent.ie.

A garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí were alerted to the incident and the man was seriously injured and removed to the Tallaght University Hospital where he passed away later this evening.

"A second man (40s) was also injured and removed to Tallaght University Hospital and is being treated for his non life threatening injuries.

"The scene is currently preserved and the State Pathologist has been notified. A post mortem will be carried out tomorrow Wednesday 11th August, 2021.

"Gardaí are appealing to any persons who may have witnessed the incident or were in the area between 6.30p.m. and 7.15p.m. or any passing taxis with dash cam footage to contact Tallaght Garda Station on 01 666 6000, the Garda Confidential Line1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
