Four men who were arrested after a stabbing in Portarlington last Friday have been released without charge.
Gardaí are investigating the stabbing incident that occurred at approximately 8am at an apartment on French Church Street.
A male in his 30s who is living in the area received a number of stab wounds and was taken to Tullamore Hospital with injuries described as non-life threatening.
Four males ranging in ages from their 20s to their 40s were arrested and were detained under the provisions of section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act at Tullamore and Portlaoise Garda Stations.
They were later released.
Gardaí say a file has been sent to the DPP in relation to two of them.
