A young mother-of-two died after suffering suspected knife wounds in a vicious attack at her home in Co Donegal.

Aspiring actress Jasmine McMonagle was found dead when elite members of the Garda Regional Response Unit stormed the house in Killygordon in the early hours of yesterday.

The 27-year-old had contacted gardaí to report a domestic disturbance. Ms McMonagle shared the home with her partner.

Gardaí received the call at 4.20am but when they arrived at 4.47am they were refused entry to the house. An altercation ensued and it is understood a Garda was attacked.

A man was arrested at around 7.30am and taken to Letterkenny garda station, where he can be held for up to 48 hours.
