A post mortem is being conducted on the body of a teenage boy, stabbed to death in Dublin last night.
Named locally as Josh Dunne, the 16 year old died of his injuries in hospital, after a row in East Wall.
Another 16 year old boy was seriously injured and a man in his 20s was also hurt.
Gardaí are appealing for anyone who was in the East Wall Road/ East Road area between 9:00pm and 9:40pm last night to come forward.
Josh was a talented footballer from Ballymun and St Kevin’s Boys Football Club say they’re devastated at his death.
