A 26-year-old man has been charged in connection with the murders of John and Gertrude Dolan in Dublin. The couple were found stabbed to death at their home on Ravensdale Road in Eastwall in the city. The man is due to appear in court in the morning.

The bodies were found after the alarm was raised by neighbours who had not seen the couple for about ten days. One of the neighbours called at the house, but she became suspicious when she was unable to gain access and called the Gardaí. They went to the house and discovered the bodies.
