Tipperary Man Stabbed To Death

An investigation is under way following the stabbing to death of a man believed to be from Kilshane, Tipperary town, Co. Tipperary.

The 24-year-old male is understood to have become involved in an altercation with at least one other male, during which he received his wounds, at Bridge Street, Mallow, Co. Cork at around 8.30pm last night.

Named locally as Mr Conor Quinn, the victim was treated by paramedics at the scene, before being taken to Cork University Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The motive for the altercation remains unclear but investigators are examining the possibility that it may have followed on from an argument earlier in the day at a horse fair in Buttevant, Co. Cork.

The scene was preserved for a time following the incident to allow for a technical examination. Local speculation would indicate that his attacker may have been from the Mallow area.

Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses or for anyone with information to contact Mallow Garda Station Tel: (022) 31450, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line Tel: 1800 666 111 or indeed any garda station.
