Gardaí arrested the main suspect in a violent stabbing that a young man fought for his life.
The serious attack took place in the early hours of Monday morning in Limerick, where a 22-year-old man was stabbed in his head.
Another 23-year-old man also suffered from injuries, but these are described as non-life threatening. The incident happened around three o'clock in a house in Woodbine Ave, Caherdavin, Limerick.
As part of the investigation into the stabbing attack, Gardai arrested a 27-year-old in the province yesterday.
He is currently being questioned under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act and can be detained for 24 hours.
The arrested man is known to gardai, but has no serious previous beliefs.
An exact motive for the attack has not yet been established, but gardai does not believe that it is related at this stage to previous incidents in the province.
Detectives believe that the three men were in a row on the relevant date and that this escalated into the double stabbing.
The injured man continues to be treated at Cork University Hospital, where he remains in a very serious condition. The second man was taken to the University Hospital in Limerick, but has since been fired.
