GARDAÍ ARE SEEKING the help of taxi drivers who may have been in the area when 46-year-old creche worker Rose Kenny was stabbed last week.

The woman was seriously injured when she was stabbed a number of times in the stairwell of School Street flat complex in Dublin just before 8am on Tuesday 23 September.

A man in his 40s was arrested shortly afterwards and has since been charged in relation to the attack.

Gardaí are now now seeking to track down anyone who may have seen a man in the nearby Marrowbone Lane / James Street area around the same time.

The man is described as being:

  • 5′ 7” in height.
  • In his late 40s.
  • Of stocky build.
  • With grey hair and a grey goatee beard.
  • Wearing dark clothing.

Investigating Gardaí are particularly interested in speaking to any taxi or hackney drivers who were working in the Dublin 8 area at that time.

They believe the man may have been picked up by a taxi at about 7:55am and dropped off in the Phibsboro area a short time later.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Kevin Street Garda Station on 01-6669400.
