A 17-year-old boy is being questioned by gardaí in connection with an overnight stabbing incident in Co Clare, in which another teenager - a 14-year-old boy - was killed. 

The victim was stabbed on O'Connell Street in Ennis at around 11pm last night.

He was brought to Ennis General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. 

The scene of the stabbing has been sealed off, and the Deputy State Pathologist, Dr Michael Curtis, is expected to carry out a post mortem examination later.
