GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for information after a man in his 40s collapsed and died on a street in the IFSC area of Dublin this week.

It happened during rush hour last Thursday evening.

According to a spokesperson:

“At approximately 5.40pm a man in his early 40s collapsed outside a building on Guild Street, Dublin 1 onto the roadway and was helped back onto the footpath, where passersby assisted him and rendered first aid and CPR.”

The man was brought to the nearby Mater Hospital but later died.

A post mortem is yet to be carried out.

Gardaí want anyone who saw the incident to get in touch.

A similar appeal was issued after a man in his 30s collapsed and died on nearby Westland Row last Sunday.

Store Street station can be reached on 01 666 8000 and the Garda Confidential Line can be contacted on 1800 666 11.
