THE HOMELESS MAN found dead in Dawson Lane in Dublin city centre on Friday has been named as Alan Murphy.

It’s understood that the man aged in his mid 30s was from the Kildare area.

He was found dead on Friday at around 7am.

Murphy was sleeping rough in the area and gardaí say they are not treating the death as suspicious.

The CEO of the Peter McVerry Trust, Pat Doyle, said he was known to charity workers since December.

A post mortem is being carried out and a file will then be sent to the Coroner’s Court.

The man’s death took place just a few hundred yards from where Jonathan Corrie passed away in a doorway on Molesworth Street last December.

Dublin Simon has warned that the number of rough sleepers is the highest it has ever been and that more homeless people could die as winter sets in.
