A MAN has been charged with murder after a Polish man was stabbed to death in a derelict pub in Dublin on Wednesday night.

The murder victim was named last night as Jacek Kozakiewicz, a Polish man (43), who had been squatting with others in the derelict Vallance and McGrath pub at North Wall Quay in Dublin's docklands.


Gardai believe a row erupted while a group of four men and a woman were drinking in the former Vallance and McGrath premises at New Wapping Street on Wednesday night.


Gardaí later arrested the 36-year-old man after a security guard at The O2 arena noticed a man in the area covered in blood.


A 28-year-old man who was also stabbed in the incident is being treated at the Mater Hospital for his injuries.


The arrested man was charged with murder by gardai last night, and is due to appear in court later this morning.
