A MAN WHO was arrested in relation to last weekend’s fatal stabbing in Tallaght has been released without charge.

Graham McKeever, a father of one, was found outside an apartment block at Deerpark Avenue by emergency services in the early hours of Saturday morning. He was unconscious and had suffered several stab wounds.

He was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics’ attempts to revive him failed.

Gardaí arrested a man in his early 40s in relation to the 32-year-old’s death on Sunday. Today, investigating detectives said they released him without charge. A file will be prepared for the DPP.

Meanwhile, funeral details for the deceased are yet to be announced.

Tributes to Graham McKeever – originally of Clondalkin, and then East Wall in Dublin 3 – are being paid across social media, led by his son Tiege.

He penned a poem which his mother shared on Facebook with a picture of the father and son.

Dad, those special memories of you will always bring a smile if only I could have you back just for a little while, then we could sit and talk and play again, the fact you are no longer here will always cause my pain, I will always love you and be forever in my heart, I love and miss you dad.In my dreams we’ll never be apart.”

His mother Valerie said her heart was “broken” by the loss of her “sweet angel”. He is also survived by his father Joseph, sister Danielle, brother David and grandparents Margaret, Gordon and Pat.
