Gardaí investigating serious armed assault on a man and woman in Cork”

A murder enquiry has been opened relating to the incident.

Gardai are hunting the killers of a Polish man who was attacked by gang in his own home.

The injuries sustained by the woman, in her 30s, are not believed to be life-threatening. The men then left the house and the injured couple were taken to Cork University Hospital for treatment.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them at Gurranabraher on 021 4946200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.

While police did not mention the weapons used in the brutal attack and only called it a "serious assault", TV3 is saying that the gang had used machetes in their attack.

Mr Wilk was a Polish national who had settled with his partner, Elzbieta, at Maglin on the outskirts of Ballincollig. O'Sullivan said the two children were in the care of social workers.

The couple's home now remains sealed off in order for a forensic examination to take place.

Gardai investigating the murder on Sunday said that after a technical examination of the BMW vehicle found in Iniskenny Ballinora, Waterfall, a firearm was recovered which will be sent for further tests.

Gardai, who have launched a murder inquiry, responded to the incident at 3.17am on Sunday.

RTÉ reports that Mr Wilk, who was originally from Poland, had lived in Ballincollig for several years and ran a garden maintenance business.
