A man found dead after a suspected stabbing incident in a Dublin flat was Irish and aged in his 20s, gardai say.

His body was discovered in a property on the South Circular Road, near the junction with Bloomfield Avenue, at about 3.45pm on Tuesday.

Gardai had been searching the flat after finding another man who was wounded on the road outside.

He was taken to nearby St James's Hospital, and his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Gardai are expected to interview him after he has been medically treated.

Also aged in his 20s, it is understood he is not an Irish national.

Both the dead man and the injured man are thought to have suffered stab wounds.

Investigating officers have also said they are looking for a third man in connection with the incident.

He was seen leaving the house at about 3.20pm.

The man, again in his 20s, is described as 5ft 6in tall, of thin build and was wearing a dark top which investigators believe may have been blood stained.

A Garda spokesman said: "The scene of the incident has been sealed off for a technical examination and the office of the State pathologist has been informed."

A post mortem examination will be carried out on Wednesday.

Investigating gardai have appealed for witnesses who were in the area between 3pm and 4pm to contact them at Kevin Street Garda station.
