The Irish Mirror is reporting that tributes are being paid to the victim of a brutal stabbing attack in Lucan.

The man was named locally as 52-year-old, Bryan Cassidy. He was stabbed in Balgaddy in West Dublin on Wednesday night. 

He was described as a “gentleman” in the area.

The Irish Independent further states that the stabbing was the result of a domestic dispute in Cassidy’s home. 

A young man – who is believed to be known to the victim – presented himself to Gardaí after the attack took place.

Allegedly, a loud row had taken place according to the neighbours before the man was stabbed.
