TWO MEN ARE due in court in Limerick this morning charged in connection with an incident in which a man sustained multiple stab wounds to his face last month.

The man in his 30s received the injuries on 16 March in what gardaí have described as “a violent disturbance involving a number of males”. The incident occurred on Parnell Street and the man was taken to University Collage Hospital Galway for treatment.

As part of an investigation into the incident, four men were arrested in the Limerick area. Two, aged in their 30s, were later released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The other two men, who are both in their 20s, are expected to appear before Limerick District Court charged in connection with the assault.
