GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING after a man who was found with head injuries outside a house in Mayo died.

A post-mortem has been carried out by the State Pathologist Marie Cassidy and the death is being treated as a homicide.

Joseph Deacy of St Albans in England was discovered outside a house at Gortnasillagh, Swinford on Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old was taken to hospital after gardaí and emergency services were called to the scene by a passer-by at around 6am.

He was brought to Mayo University Hospital by ambulance but he was later removed to Beaumont Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on Sunday evening.

A forensic examination of the scene has been carried out and an incident room has been established at Claremorris Garda Station. A family liaison officer has also been appointed.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to contact Claremorris Garda Station on 094 937 2080 or the Garda Confidential Line.
