Gardai appealing to north Longford motorists’ help in Cavan murder investigation

Gardai are appealing for any north Longford motorists who may have been travelling to or from Ballyjamesduff on New Year’s Eve to contact them.

A murder investigation’s been launched following the death of a Polish man in the town on Sunday night.

The 40-year-old was stabbed after a row in his home in Ballyjamesduff and later died in hospital.


Following a postmortem Gardaí say they’re now upgrading the investigation to murder.

Gardai are appealing to any drivers, especially in the north Longford and south Cavan areas to contact them if they may have dashcam footage of the town between 10.00pm and midnight on the Dublin road in the town.
