Can you help? This man's body was found at the base of the Cliffs of Moher in 2010

The man’s DNA and other information has been sent to police forces around the world. So far, no-one’s come forward to identify him.

GARDAÍ ARE ISSUING a fresh appeal for help identifying the body of a man found at the base of the Cliffs of Moher in Clare four years ago.

The man’s remains were found by Doolin Search and Rescue on 30 July 2010.

He was naked, except for shoes and socks, and was believed to have been in the water for around ten days.

A post-mortem showed he had injuries consistent with a fall.

Initial investigations proved fruitless, as gardaí carried out local searches and trawled CCTV footage.

A forensic dentist even examined the man’s teeth, and reported extensive dental work, most likely done on mainland Europe.

His DNA, dental and other information was also sent out to police forces internationally, via Interpol and Europol.

The above facial reconstruction, carried out by Dundee University, was released in November 2011.

RTÉ’s Crimecall programme, to be broadcast tonight, will feature an updated appeal from gardaí in the hope that someone may come forward and recognise the man.
