GARDAI IN GALWAY are seeking the public’s assistance to help them identify the body of a man who was taken from the River Corrib at approximately 9.30am on Saturday, 2 February.

The man is described as 6’2″ in height, of medium build and with a weathered complexion, which they say is consistent with someone who would have spent a large amount of time outdoors.

He has grey receding hair with a red/brown tinge going through it and grey stubble with a hint of red.

When recovered from the water the man was wearing the following:

  • a black t-shirt with a multi-coloured picture of an eagle on the front (‘Cedarwood State’ purchased in Penneys)
  • black combat trousers (Penneys)
  • a white Nike brand hoodie
  • black Oakley trainers size 12 with white soles

The deceased male was also wearing brown wooden rosary beads around his neck, which has ‘Medjugore’ written on the cross.

The person had no scars, tattoos or piercings.

Anyone who may have information on this man’s identity is asked to contact Gardaí at Galway Garda Station on 091-538000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
