Gardaí are investigating after a man was stabbed to death in Co Limerick.

The killing occurred at around 11pm in the town of Pallasgreen.

Sources in the emergency services said they were responding to a call from a woman who claimed that she was being assaulted when they discovered the body of a man.

The man's body was found at a house in The Grove estate at the entrance to the town on the Limerick City side.

There are unconfirmed reports that the man, who is aged in his mid 20s, had been trying to intervene in an incident involving a woman and another man when he received fatal stab wounds.

Sources said the man was stabbed in the chest, abdomen, and arms.

His body remains at the house and a full scale Garda investigation is underway.

Gardaí and ambulance crews were dispatched to the scene after initial reports suggested two people had been killed. However, one person was discovered deceased at the house when emergency services arrived.

Members of the garda emergency response unit have responded to the scene as have several ambulance vehicles.

Gardaí have sealed off the area and are conducting house-to-house enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bruff Garda station on 061-382940 or Henry Street Garda station on 061-212400.
