The 52-year-old received serious stab wounds at Buirg an Rí Walk in the west Dublin suburb at around 10.20pm.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 19-year-old man was then arrested shortly after midnight. He is currently being detained at Ronanstown Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
