Laszlo Nemeth, who previously had an address in Cork, has been ordered to leave Ireland upon his release from prison and never return.

Nemeth appeared before the  Circuit Criminal Court in the city yesterday in connection with the incident which occurred in Glen North, Banteer, Co Cork.

During the course of the attack the former soldier and qualified pilot took out a fish knife and stabbed his wife, who he was separated from at the time, five times.

He then chased his son around their garden with an axe and assaulted him, while threatening to kill all who were present before he fled the scene.

Judge James McCourt said that threats to kill in the case "were real and must have been terrifying."

He sentenced Lazlo Nemeth to five years in prison and suspended the final 6 months on the condition that he return to his native country once released.
