GARDAÍ HAVE MADE two arrests in connection with the death of a man at a senior citizens’ housing complex in the Ringsend area of Dublin on Monday.

The body of 63-year-old Thomas Horan was discovered at Cambridge Court at 4am on Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem revealed he had died as a result of internal injuries, and gardaí confirmed this evening that they were upgrading their enquiry to a murder investigation.

A woman aged 37 and a 27-year-old man were arrested by gardaí this afternoon. They’re being questioned at Donnybrook and Irishtown garda stations.

Investigating officers are also appealing for information on the case — they’re asking anyone who may have been in the Cambridge Court/Road area between 10pm on Sunday night and 4am on Monday to get in contact. Irishtown Garda Station can be reached on 01 – 666 9600.

First posted, 2.38pm.
