A MAN IN his 70s has died after what is believed to have been a domestic dispute at a house near Clondalkin in Dublin.

At about 8.45 pm last night gardaí were called to a house at Rowlagh Green where a man had been injured. Upon arrival, a 74-year-old male was discovered with serious injuries.

The injured man was taken to Tallaght Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Gardai have said that it is believed there was an earlier domestic dispute at the house where he was discovered.

The scene has been preserved for a technical examination by the Garda Technical Bureau which is scheduled to begin this morning. A post-mortem on the man’s body is scheduled to be carried out tomorrow.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone who can insist their investigation to contact an incident room that has been set up at Ronanstown Garda Station on 01-6667700.

People may also contact the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800-666-111 or any garda station.
