A man in his 30s has been charged following the death of a pensioner at his home in south Dublin.

Carpenter Harry Sheeran (66) was stabbed to death in his house in Carriglea View, Firhouse, shortly before midnight on Sunday.

The incident occurred at approximately 11.50pm on Father’s Day.

Emergency services rushed to the scene but Mr Sheeran, described by neighbours as a “gentle giant”, was pronounced dead a short time later.

A 30-year-old man, who is a relative of Mr Sheeran, was arrested at the scene and he remained in custody at Tallaght garda station last night.

He was detained on suspicion of murder. His period of detention was suspended yesterday after he was hospitalised and treated for a cut.

He was later returned to custody and was last night being quizzed about the fatal stabbing.

Gardai revealed this morning he had been charged.

A spokesperson said: "The male in his 30s, arrested in relation to the fatal assault of a man in his 60s in Dublin 24 on Sunday 20th June has been charged.

"He is due to appear before Tallaght District Court at 10:30am this morning, Tuesday 22nd June 2021."
