An altercation took place between a number of males at the night club and two males were injured and taken to University Hospital Limerick.

Mr Higgins was pronounced dead at University Hospital Limerick at 3.35am and a post mortem into his death was carried out on Sunday.

As part of the investigation, gardaí in Shannon are appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information and in particular would like to speak to anyone who was in the Shannon Knights night club on the night to contact them in Shannon on 061 365900, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
