Update: The woman who was stabbed to death in Dublin this morning was a 34-year-old from Latvia.

Skaidrite Valdgeima lived in Deerpark Walk in Blessington and was a mother of three.

She was killed in an apartment in the Bonham Street area of Dublin 8 at 3.40am.

Gardaí are continuing to question a man, who is understood to be known to the victim.

Blessington councillor Gerry O'Neill said the area is in shock.

Mr O'Neill said: "It's shocking to think that (this would happen) to someone from the town here on a visit to Dublin.

"I would know some of the people from Latvia and non-nationals from around here, and it's a dreadful situation that a young woman would meet her death like this."
