GARDAÍ HAVE ASKED any taxi drivers who may have picked up passengers in the Wellmount Road area of Finglas to contact them.

A 29-year-old man was found dead at an apartment in the Spring Mount complex on the road, with gardaí believing there was a house party at the apartment last night.

At around 11am this morning, the body  of the man was found in what gardaí are calling “suspicious circumstances”.

Gardaí found the body of the man in a bedroom of a ground-floor apartment. The scene was immediately sealed off for a full technical examination and the offices of the State Pathologist notified.

The State Pathologist, Dr. Marie Cassidy, has visited the scene and conducted a preliminary examination.

The body of the deceased has been removed to the City Morgue at Marino where a post mortem is currently underway.

Gardaí say they will await the results of the post-mortem before deciding on the nature of the investigation.

A Garda Family Liaison Officer (FLO) has been appointed and is liaising with the family of the deceased man, but gardaí say they will not be naming the victim until his family have been told.

An incident room has been set up at Finglas Garda Station to investigate all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of this body.

A number of people have come forward already, but gardai are appealing to anyone who may have been at the apartment between 8pm last night and 7am this morning to come forward.

In addition, gardaí would also like to speak to any taxi drivers who may have collected passengers from the area overnight to to contact the Incident Room at Finglas Garda Station on 01-6667500, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
