Thomas Kinsella (aged 34) of Orchid House on James's Street killed John Murdoch at Cushlawn Way in Tallaght on August 27, 2011.
The Central Criminal Court heard the accused produced a knife when a group of youths started verbally abusing him and his friends, calling them junkies and scumbags.
He was cleared of murder by a jury who found he had acted in self defence but had used excessive force.
