Shocked residents woke after 7am to find a crime scene outside their doors.
Gardai quickly taped off the entrance to the estate and householders had to pass through a cordon to get in or out.
Officers erected a blue crime scene tent next to where the body of the victim lay on the freezing road beside two cars. The house where it is believed he was staying with his partner is one of two in front of an area of mature trees in the estate.
There are parking spaces in front of the properties in the quiet enclave which is home to dozens of families and children.
The Garda Technical Bureau carried out a forensic examination on the roadway.
The victim’s body lay at the scene for a number of hours before an ambulance arrived to remove the man’s remains shortly before noon. Shocked locals and passersby stood back as the vehicle carrying the body was waved through the cordon.
A forensic team also examined a house at the scene. It is just feet from where the victim’s body lay.
The blinds were pulled on both floors of the well-kept, two-storey townhouse which was also cordoned off behind the crime scene tape.
SpaceX rocket booster misses its landing
Monday’s launch went off smoothly, the company said, and its booster fell back through the atmosphere, slowing itself down by refiring its engine. For decades, rocket boosters had been ditched into the ocean after propelling their payloads to orbit. But SpaceX has sought to change that dynamic by developing a rocket that could not only blast off to space, but then autonomously reorient itself and fly back to Earth, touching down with pinpoint precision.
The body lay close to signs warning drivers of “children at play” testifying to the family nature of the estate. Shortly after the victim’s remains were removed a distressed woman arrived and was ushered away from the scene by uniformed gardai.
The woman in custody is currently the only suspect in the case and has been arrested on suspicion of the dead man’s murder.
She was brought to Clondalkin station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 for questioning.
Locals expressed shock at the violent death on their doorstep, adding it was a quiet estate where “nothing like this had happened before”.
One man told reporters: “We have had a couple of incidents in Citywest but we’ve never had anything down here. It’s a good, quiet estate.
“We were messaging into the
WhatsApp group this morning and we just couldn’t believe it was so close. We couldn’t believe it happened here.”
A Garda statement yesterday said: “Gardai in Clondalkin have arrested a woman, aged in her 30s, following a fatal stabbing in the Brownsbarn estate, Kingswood area, near Citywest, Co Dublin, which occurred in the early hours of this morning.
