GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are renewing their appeal for information regarding the 2007 murder of Michael Gallager at his Tallaght home.

Gallagher, 60, was stabbed several times by two men in the kitchen of his home at 49 Tymonville Road, Tallaght on 18 January 2007.

Gardaí say that just after 10pm, Gallagher’s partner answered a knock at the front door. Two men entered the house and assaulted Gallagher in an “unprovoked attack”. He sustained a fatal knife wound, and his partner received minor injuries.

The two men fled the scene on foot.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the Tymonville area on the evening on 18 January 2007 to contact them on 01 666 6000. They are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have information about two men seen on the road near Gallagher’s home at around 10pm that night.
