Gardaí have named the man who died following stabbing incident in Waterford last night as 25-year-old Michael O’Dwyer from Kilkenny.

Emergency services were called to the house at Seafield Holiday Cottages, Tramore at around 11.30pm.

Gardaí discovered a man who was seriously injured lying outside the house. He was treated at the scene before being removed to Waterford Regional Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
