24 year old victim died after he was stabbed in Mallow last night

Gardaí have upgraded their investigation into the death of a man in County Cork last night to murder.

The decision was taken after a post mortem was carried out on the body of Conor Quinn, from Loughrea, Co Galway.

Detectives are renewing their appeal for witnesses and for a young man they believe was with the 24 year old.

They also want to speak to anyone who travelled in and around the Mallow Town area between 7.30pm and 9.30pm last night who have 'dash cam' footage to contact them.

Gardaí believe the victim had been involved in an earlier row at a horse show in Buttevant.
