His body has since been taken to Dublin City Mortuary, where a post-mortem will be conducted on Saturday, the results of which will determine the course of the Garda investigation.

The scene is currently preserved for technical examination by the Garda Technical Bureau.

A garda spokesperson said: “Gardaí in Blanchardstown are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the death in unexplained circumstances of a man in the Dublin 15 area in the early hours of Saturday, 22nd October, 2022.”

“Any road users (particularly taxi drivers) or pedestrians who were travelling in these areas at these times who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 666 7000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.”
