Gardai seek man who brought murdered woman to hospital

GARDAI investigating the murder of a young woman who was stabbed to death in Dublin last night have appealed for a man who brought her to hospital to contact them.

The man, who is believed to be responsible for the attack, took the 26-year-old mother-of-two to James Connolly hospital in a 08 D white Ford Focus hatchback.

He left her outside the accident and emergency department and then made contact with the gardai.

The woman later died in hospital. Her brother, who was injured in the attack, is also being treated in the hospital, where he is said to be in a stable condition.

The attack took place at the woman’s home in Allendale Glen, Ongar, in the north west of the city at around 9pm.

Her two children, a boy and girl aged under two years, were in the house at the time but were unhurt.

It is believed that the man, who knew the victims, came to the house shortly before the attack.

Gardai at Blanchardstown station are appealing for anyone with information to contact them on 01 6667032.
