A MAN in his sixties has been stabbed to death in south Dublin.

Gardaí have appealed for information after the man was stabbed in a house at Rutland Grove, Crumlin, yesterday.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 8pm.

The man was rushed to St James's Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out today.

Gardaí are continuing to question a man in his thirties who was arrested in connection with the stabbing.

Superintendent Michael Cryan said: "We are appealing to anyone who was in the Rutland Grove and Clogher Road area of Dublin 12 between 8pm and 8.15pm on Sunday August 19 2018 to come forward.

"We are also trying to trace the movements of a red Toyota Yaris, described as a four-door hatchback with L plates and partial registration 04-WW, that was driven from the scene at Rutland Grove at about 8pm before it was recovered at approximately 8.20pm at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown.

"We would also appeal to anyone with dash cam footage from the Rutland Grove or Connolly Hospital areas in and around the specified times to make it available to investigators."

The investigation is ongoing.
