A 19-year-old man is being questioned by gardaí after a man was stabbed to death in west Dublin last night.

Gardaí were called to the scene at Buirg an Rí Walk in Balgaddy in Lucan, just after 10.20pm last night.

On arrival, they discovered a 52-year-old man with serious stab wounds. The man was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.   

It is believed the man was injured following a row at his home and he collapsed while trying to get help.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place today and the local coroner has been notified.

This woman lives in the neighbourhood:

A 19-year-old man was arrested shortly after midnight and is currently detained at Ronanstown Garda Station. 

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Lucan Garda Station on 01-666-7382, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.

Chief reporter with The Herald, Conor Feehan, outlines what's known about the attack:

“It seems this man who lives on one of the houses on Buirg an Rí Walk, a 52-year-old man was attacked in his own property and stabbed, we don’t know how many times,” he said.

“[He] managed to struggle from his own property and made his way two doors down and made his way to a garden where he collapsed and subsequently died.”

The scene has been preserved for a technical examination and the Garda Technical Bureau is in attendance.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information to contact them.
