Appeal issued after man's body recovered from sea by Cliffs of Moher

Gardaí are seeking to identify the remains of a man aged around 30 years old who may have travelled from Galway.

GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for the public’s assistance in identifying the body of a man which was recently recovered from the sea off the Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare.

No positive identification has been made of the deceased yet.

The man’s body taken from the water on the afternoon of 22 May. An admission ticket for O’Brien’s Tower on Cliff of Moher was found in his jacket pocket; the ticket was issued shortly after 2pm on 22 May.

Gardaí say that he may have travelled from Galway because a Bus Éireann timetable for the Galway to Doolin route was found on his person.

The man is described as a white male, about 30 years old and approximately 5′ 10” in height. He has dark hair on the sides and back of his head but is predominantly bald on top. He has no distinguishing marks, scars or tattoos and no post-operative scars.

He was wearing a size 48 black rain/sports jacket made by Maier, with grey and black striped sleeves. He was also wearing a grey Dunnes Stores hoodie with Brooklyn 62 written on the left front, a plain grey t-shirt of no discernible brand, a white Adidas t-shirt, and a black Casio watch model SGW-100.

Gardaí are not treating the death as suspicious, and have contacted Interpol in an effort to identify the remains.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Ennistymon Garda Station on 065 7072180, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any garda station.
