An investigation is under way after a 19-year-old man was stabbed outside Dundrum Town Centre in Dublin last night.

The man was stabbed a number of times near the entrance to the cinema at around 11.15pm.

He was taken to St Vincent's University Hospital, where he was treated for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses who may have been in the area last night to contact them at Dundrum Garda Station.
