There were two children under the age of six in the house at the time of the attack and were uninjured. Cork home in the early hours of this morning has been named as Mikolaj Wilk.

Wilk, who is also known locally as Nick, was taken to the Cork University Hospital but was pronounced dead at 5:30 AM.

The 35-year-old Polish man was found with serious injuries when Gardaí arrived at The Bridge House, Maglin, Ballincollig between 3.15am and 3.30am yesterday morning.
