A woman was rushed to hospital early this morning after she was stabbed a number of times at a house in Limerick.

Gardaí in Mayorstone, Limerick are investigating the serious assault on the 37-year-old woman.

Independent.ie has learned that officers were called to the scene at approximately 12.40am after receiving a report of a disturbance at a property at Hassetts Villas, Thomondgate.

When officers entered the home they found the woman with serious stab injuries to her body.

An ambulance was called and the injured woman was taken to University Hospital Limerick. Gardai say that she is in a critical but stable condition.
