Investigations are continuing into a fatal stabbing in the North Strand area this morning, in which a man in his mid-40s lost his life.

Gardai are investigating the stabbing at Clinchs Court, just off of North Strand, which occurred at around 4am this morning, Friday July 19.

Gardaí were alerted to the incident and the man was seriously injured and removed to the Mater Hospital where he later passed away from his injuries. 

A second man who was also in his mid 40s was also injured in the incident and removed to St. James Hospital, where he is being treated for his injuries.

It is unclear of the two men were attacked by the same person, or if the two men were known to each other.

The scene is currently preserved and the State Pathologist has been notified.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area between 3.00a.m. and 4.15a.m. or any passing taxis with dash cam footage to contact Mountjoy Garda Station on 01.6668600, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
