SIX MEN WERE arrested and a number of weapons and knives were seized by gardaí after a stabbing at Tralee cemetery yesterday.

The assault happened yesterday at Rathass Cemetery when a 24-year-old man was stabbed in a public order incident that began at about 12.30 pm.

The victim was taken to Kerry General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A number of other men were involved in the incident and shortly afterwards gardaí stopped two cars.

They recovered a number of weapons and knives from both cars and six men aged between 15 and 34 years were arrested.

They were held at Tralee, Killarney and Castleisland garda stations and five have since been charged. These men are due to appear before Tralee District Court at 11am this morning.
