A MAN IS due in court this afternoon, charged in connection with a house fire and assault in Co Offaly in September.

A 24-year-old man was found with a number of stab wounds and extensive burn injuries when gardaí were called to the blaze at Cloncur, Rhode on September 7.

The incident was reported by a passer-by and it’s understood that the man almost died following the incident.

It appears the premises which went on fire may have been used to breed dogs.

After the incident, a number of dogs were taken from kennels and away from the scene by the county dog warden.
