Two men are due in court in Limerick this morning in connection with a violent incident in the city last month during which a man was stabbed in the face.

The two aged in their 20s are expected to appear before a sitting of Limerick District Court this morning, charged following a Garda investigation into the incident on Parnell St on Sunday, March 16.

"On Sunday 16th March 2014 at approximately 6.40pm a male aged in his 30s sustained stab wounds to his face during a violent disturbance involving a number of males," gardaí said.

The injured male was taken to University Collage Hospital Galway where he was treated for his injuries.

Four men were arrested in Limerick yesterday as part of the garda investigation into the incident.

Two men aged in their 30s were later released without charge and files will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
