A 19-year-old man who was stabbed in Swords last Thursday evening has died.

Gardaí have confirmed that Marius Mamaliga passed away yesterday afternoon as a result of his injuries.


This attack happened at around seven o'clock on Thursday evening on Brookdale Avenue.

19-year-old Marius Mamaliga suffered stab wounds to his neck and was in a critical condition at Beaumont Hospital since.

Gardaí released a statement last night saying that he was pronounced dead on Sunday afternoon.

Dublin District Court heard on Saturday that Mr. Mamaliga was sitting in his car when he was attacked.

20-year-old Brandon Gavin of Brookdale Road, River Valley, Swords, was charged with causing serious harm.

The court heard an hour and twenty minutes after the incident, Mr. Gavin handed himself into Gardaí after his father brought him to Swords Station.

The court also heard Gardaí had CCTV evidence of a male approaching the rear of the car and fleeing 14 seconds later.

Mr. Gavin was remanded in custody, with consent to bail, and is due to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Wednesday.
