AN APPEAL HAS been issued for information relating to the body of a man that was found in Galway a year ago.

Gardaí are asking anyone with any information to come forward.

Despite an extensive investigation, the identity of the man and where he came from remains a mystery.

After a photofit of his face was released last month gardaí received some contact from members of the public.

The man was wearing a gold bracelet watch and black leather jacket.

It is believed that he was in contact with someone else in the local area in the hours before he died.

He was believed to have been aged between 30 and 40, around 6ft fall with black hair and a broad/ strong build.

The man’s body was discovered in Rusheen Woods by a local on the 27 September last year.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.
