Gardai are appealing for witnesses

A gun has been found by Gardai investigating the murder of a Polish man in Ballincollig Co. Cork.

A technical exam is being carried out at the house where 35-year-old Mikolaj Wilk was stabbed to death in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The victim's wife was also injured in the attack by a gang of men who broke into their home.

The weapon was found in a getaway car - a 3 series BMW which was found burnout in Waterfall.

Gardaí are continuing to carry out house to house enquiries and a post mortem on the victims body is ongoing.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information to contact them - in particular, drivers who may have dash cam footage and who travelled in the Maglin, Ballincollig, Ballinora and Waterfall areas between 2am and 5am this morning.
