A MAN in his 30s is expected to appear before a sitting of Bray District Court this morning, charged in connection with a fatal stabbing in Shankill, Co Dublin on St Stephen's Day.

Two men in their 20s were found with serious stab injuries on the road at Rathsallagh Park and taken by ambulance to St Vincent's Hospital. David Spain (26) died and Sean Turner (22) remains in hospital.

€15M FOR CLASSROOMS

MORE than 2,600 pupils in schools around the country will move from prefabs into permanent accommodation in 2014. The Department of Education will spend €15m on the Prefab Replacement Scheme next year, allowing 46 schools to replace 119 mainstream classrooms and 37 resource rooms.

It is the second phase of an initiative started in March 2012, which is worth in excess of €42m.
