    A 20-year-old man has died after being stabbed in the neck and collapsing outside a fish and chip shop.

    Cameron Blair was reportedly at a house party in Cork when he was stabbed in the neck.

    He staggered outside the property and walked a few metres towards Lennox's chip-shop where he fell onto the pavement.

    His friends rushed to his side and called an ambulance, Cork Beo reported.

    Paramedics attempted to resuscitate Cameron while taking him to Cork University Hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

    It is believed Cameron, who was a second-year sciences student at the Cork Institute of Technology, had spent the day with his family in West Cork before travelling to the city for a party.
