GARDAÍ ARE MAKING a fresh appeal for witnesses following the murder of James Griffin at a warehouse rave in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Griffin died following an attack at a unit in an industrial estate at Parkwest in Dublin.

Gardaí were called to the scene following reports of a disturbance at about 4am and discovered the man in his 20s badly injured.

He was taken by ambulance to nearby Tallaght Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The private rave is believed to have been previously held at the same business park.

Gardaí are now making a direct appeal to taxi drivers who may have dropped or collected people at the site at O’Casey Avenue between 3am and 4.30am.
