No arrests have been made and gardai at Clondalkin are renewing their appeal for witnesses.



The local coroner and State pathologist have been notified and arrangements were being made on Wednesday for a post-mortem examination.

An incident room has been set up at Clondalkin Garda Station and a liaison officer has been appointed to provide support and updates to the man’s family.

Additionally, investigators are seeking information from anyone who was in the Tower Road area of Clondalkin between 9.30pm and 10.15pm, or in the Grange View Way area between 10.00pm and 10.30pm.

They are also looking for any potential camera footage from that time period.
