Murder investigation after Mallow stabbing

Friday, 13th July, 2018 10:14am

Gardai are conducting a murder investigation after a man was fatally stabbed in Mallow last night.

The man in his 20s, named as Conor Quinn, sustained stab wounds following an altercation at Bridge Street in Mallow at approximately 8.30pm last night. He was taken to Cork University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Gardai have now launched a murder investigation following the completion of the post mortem this afternoon. The results have been passed to the investigation team and are not being released for operational reasons.

Gardaí say they are aware of the “background circumstances” relating to the incident, and are wishing to speak to a man they believe was present when it took place.

“Gardaí have carried out a number searches and enquiries in relation to this incident,” a garda statement read. “We are now anxious to speak to a male who we believe was present with the deceased when he sustained his injuries at approximately 8.30pm on the 12 July on Bridge Street, Mallow, County Cork.

“Gardaí are aware of the background circumstances which precipitated to the engagement and we can assure that any person that comes forward will be dealt with professionally in accordance with the law.”

Gardai wish to renew their appeal for witnesses, and in particular anyone who travelled in and around the Mallow town area between 7.30pm and 9.30pm last night who have ‘dash cam’ footage from their vehicle, to contact them at Mallow Garda Station on 022-31450, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800-666111, or any garda station.
