Donnybrook man may have been dead for a month

Patrick Coulter was found dead in his home on February 10 – with his last confirmed sighting over four weeks previously.

GARDAÍ HAVE APPEALED for information from the public in connection with the last known sightings of a man found dead in his Dublin home last week.

Patrick Coulter, 65, was found dead in his home in Beech Hill, Donnybrook last Thursday – but Gardaí say that the last confirmed sighting of him was at the post office on St Andrew’s Street in Dublin city centre over four weeks ago.

His final sighting was on January 12 – meaning he may have been dead in his house for up to a month before his body was discovered.

Gardaí say the deceased “kept to himself” and said he was reserved in nature, and have appealed for information on his whereabouts between the last sighting and the date on which he was discovered.

In particular, Gardaí are keen to trace his movements in the days immediately preceding February 10.

Information can be offered to Donnybrook Garda Station at (01) 6669200, to the Garda Confidential line at 1800 666 111, or to any Garda station.
