Ireland: Polish man Mikolaj Wilk murdered in home invasion, partner seriously injured

A man has been killed after armed thugs broke into his home in the middle of the night and battered him and his partner.

Another woman and two children, believed to be under the age of six, were also in the property when the incident happened but were not hurt.

The couple were rushed to Cork University Hospital for treatment, however Mr Wilk was pronounced dead at around 5.30am.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information or to anyone who may have witnessed this incident to contact them.

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. He died later in hospital. O'Sullivan said the two children were in the care of social workers.

The website continues: "The B.E.T.A. will be available on Xbox One , PlayStation 4, and on PC (via Bethesda.net)". Fallout 76 looks as if hopes to lure in new players to franchise with this sort of new fresh take on the game.


The gang left the scene before gardai arrived in what gardai believe was a BMW 3 series.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place later on Sunday.

The murder scene is now sealed off and gardai are continuing their house-to-house inquiries.

They say the group fled the scene in a auto, believed to be a BMW Three Series, which was later found burnt out at Inniskenny in Waterfall.

Fundraiser has been set up online for Mikolaj Wilk to help Cork murder victim's family. Wilk, also known as Nick, ran a garden maintenance business in the area and had lived in Ireland for a number of years.
