TESTS ARE BEING carried out in a bid to determine the identity of the human remains discovered yesterday in Tallaght, Co Dublin.

Members of the public alerted the gardaí to the remains, which were found near Military Road yesterday morning.

The scene remains sealed off for a technical examination and gardaí are using dental records and DNA testing as part of the effort to identify the skeletal remains.
