GARDAÍ HAVE LOCATED the white Ford Focus being sought in connection to a murder in west Dublin last night.

A number of appeals for witnesses and other information in relation to the fatal stabbing of a mother-of-two in Clonsilla have been made. Detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in locating a red Renault Mégane with a registration number 03 LH 4081.

They would also like to speak with the driver of the white Ford Focus and have asked him to contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station.

The attack on the 25-year-old woman and her 33-year-old relative, understood to be her brother, took place at a house in Allendale Glen, Clonsilla at around 8.30pm yesterday.

Her children were in the home at the time but escaped uninjured.

On arrival at the house in Clonsilla, Gardaí found the man with stab wounds and he was removed to James Connolly Memorial Hospital. His injuries are said to be not life threatening.

The woman was left at the entrance to the Accident and Emergency Department of the hospital by the white Ford Focus hatchback. She died later from her injuries.

Scenes at Allendale Glen and James Connolloy Memorial Hospital have been preserved for technical examination and a post mortem is taking place.

Gardaí are appealing for any persons who were in the area of Allendale Glen from 8pm to 9pm and who may have witnessed the assault to come forward.

They are also appealing for information from anyone who may have seen the white Ford Focus hatchback at the entrance to the A&E Department where the woman was dropped off. Any medical staff, patients or visitors to the hospital at that time may have witnessed this.

The car, bearing the partial registration number 08 D 22 is missing the rear drivers hub cap.

Gardaí are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the incident room in Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 6667032, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
