A man who was fatally stabbed in Gilford in County Down in the early hours of this morning has been named as 36-year-old Eamonn Darren O'Hanlon from North Belfast.

He died as a result of his injuries after he was knifed outside a house in Hill Street in the village.

I know the entire Gilford community will be in shock.  It is important for everyone to give time and space to the PSNI to conduct their investigations.  Our thanks must also go to the emergency services who attended to the scene.  If anyone has any further information please come forward and report it to the Police.”
