The men then left the house and the injured couple were taken to Cork University Hospital for treatment.

Gardaí are investigating following a serious assault on a man and a woman at a house in Ballincollig, County Cork on Sunday morning.

Gardai responded to an incident at 3.17 am this morning and said they were on the scene within five minutes.

The men, who were carrying weapons, entered the house and seriously assaulted the man and his partner, whose injuries are not life-threatening.

Two young children, aged under six years old, were also in the property at the time but were uninjured, as was another woman in his early 30s.

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

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

Gardaí found a firearm, possibly a handgun, and two machetes in a burnt-out vehicle that was used by the gang.

The Gardai have opened a murder investigation into the killing of Wilk and are appealing for information from anyone in the area, who may have noticed suspicious or unusual activities that night.

Fundraiser has been set up online for Mikolaj Wilk to help Cork murder victim's family. They believe the auto was a BMW 3 series.

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