GARDAÍ HAVE renewed their appeal for witnesses to a violent assault on Pearse Street in Dublin city on 21 November which led to the death of a 41-year-old man.

The man, a taxi driver, was taken to St James’s Hospital, where he died on Wednesday. It is understood he was attacked by a lone man who left the scene and walked towards Erne Street.

One man was arrested in connection with the fatal assault but was later released without charge.

Gardaí said today that they are appealing to a taxi driver who picked up three men and one woman outside the public library on Pearse Street at about 12.30am on the night of the attack. It is believed this taxi dropped the four passengers off near the junction of Dame Street and Sycamore Street.

So far, gardaí have been unable to track this taxi driver down and are keen to speak to him as he may have “valuable information” which could assist the investigation.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who has any information about the incident to contact them at Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 666 9000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any garda station.
