A man was stabbed through his tongue with a dagger, during a row at a house in Co Limerick, a court heard.

Details of the alleged double stabbing were told during a special sitting of Kilmallock District Court yesterday.

Andrew Devereux (21), of Scanlon Park, Castleconnell, appeared before the court, charged in connection with the incident last Friday.

A bail hearing was told Mr Devereux was with his mother at their home when five men called to their door.

It was alleged Mr Devereux produced a "dagger" and stabbed two of the men.

One of the alleged victims sustained three stab wounds to his back, a stab wound to a shoulder and another stab wound to his lower back.

The other alleged victim sustained stab wounds to his face, including one which punctured his tongue.

Judge Marian O'Leary granted Mr Devereux bail, provided a €5,000 independent surety is lodged with the court. She remanded the accused in custody with consent to bail, to appear before Limerick District Court tomorrow.
