Human arm found on beach in south Dublin

Gardaí say the arm, as well as a human leg found on a beach last week, is being investigated.

GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING the discovery of a human arm on a beach in Shankill, south Dublin yesterday.

The arm was found by a member of the public at around noon and Gardaí were notified.

Gardaí said the coroner has been notified and the arm has been taken to the morgue.

Last week a human leg was found by a walker on Dollymount beach and a spokesperson at the Garda press office told that while it is too early to say if they are connected, both body parts are being investigated and will be tested for a match.
