A 19-YEAR-OLD man who had been arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing in Co Clare has been released without charge.

Gardaí say that a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in connection with the incident.

A post mortem examination into the death of a man after the incident at a Clare nightclub concluded earlier today.

The Limerick man was fatally injured at Shannon Knights nightclub in Tullyvarraga, Shannon just before 2am yesterday. A 22-year-old man was also injured during the incident and is being treated for his injuries at University Hospital Limerick.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Commenting on the investigation, Superintendent John Galvin said gardaí were harvesting CCTV footage from inside the nightclub.

Gardaí have also appealed for witnesses to come forward or contact them on 061 365 900. In particular, they would like to speak to anyone who was in Shannon Knights.
