Post mortem to take place of Kerry stabbing victim

A post-mortem examination is expected to take place today on the body of stabbing victim Thomas Dooley.

He died after being attacked while attending a funeral at Rath Cemetery in Tralee yesterday.

His wife, Siobhán, is still being treated in University Hospital Kerry with non-life threatening injuries.

Kerry journalist, Anne Lucey, says the cemetery has a history of violence:

“Rath Cemetraty has been the scene of a number of violent disorder incidents in recent years.

“Large quantities of weapons, including slashhooks, were recovered there in 2014 in one incident.

“The Gardai actually prevented a major violent incident on that occasion.”
