A young man has been brought to hospital after a stabbing incident in Dublin last night.
It is understood that the man was knifed after attempting to break up a brawl outside a home in Coolock, North Dublin.
The incident happened in the Moatview estate after 9pm.
A source said a scuffle broke out in the estate and the 25-year-old victim, who was visiting a friend's home, went out to intervene.
He was stabbed at least once in the lower back with a kitchen knife.
Emergency services were called but it is understood that the man was brought to Beaumont Hospital by a family member in a private car.
His injuries have been described as "not life-threatening".
Earlier this week a man was rushed to hospital after he was attacked with a broken glass at a house in Belcamp Green, Coolock.
The man, named locally as Paul Clarke, was attacked by a woman after a row developed in the house.
Neither the victim or the alleged attacker own the house where the attack took place, but were said to be visiting at the time.
