The body of the man has been removed to University Hospital Kerry where a post mortem is scheduled to be completed, the results of which will determine the course of the garda investigation. 

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. 

Gardaí are also appealing for any road users or pedestrians who may have camera footage, including dashcam footage, and who were travelling in the Muckross Road area between 11pm and 11:45pm to make this footage available to them.
