GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN have begun a search for the remains of convicted rapist James Nolan.

The search was launched at Tolka Valley Park in Finglas after gardaí received information that Nolan’s remains may be found there.

In February 2011, a human arm discovered on Dollymount Beach was identified through DNA testing as that of the convicted criminal. Nolan, 46, of Fairlawn Road in Finglas had been released from prison in 2010 after serving a term for burglary.

He had not been seen since his release when his limb was found on the Dublin beach, but he had not been reported missing.

In 1986, he was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his part in the gang rape of a 23-year-old woman.
