A 22-year-old man has been charged in connection with the death of Jay Saunders who was discovered in an unconscious state in Cabra yesterday morning.

The man will appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice on Parkgate Street tomorrow morning at 10.30am.

Saunders was found outside a pub on Fassaugh Avenue in the north Dublin suburb with serious injuries after what appears to be a savage attack outside an adjoining shop.

The fight is believed to have happened shortly after 7am yesterday morning.

People who came upon the scene immediately called gardai and the emergency services, and Saunders was rushed to the Mater Hospital but was pronounced dead.
