A GRANDFATHER was stabbed to death by a man who called to his daughter's home where he had gone to look after his grandchildren.

Gardai arrested a man after the 55-year-old victim, named locally as father-of-two Michael Gannon, from Finglas, Dublin, was found in a pool of blood in his daughter's house in Mourne Park, Skerries, north county Dublin.

Local sources say Mr Gannon was earlier involved in a verbal row with another man.
