A MAN WHO suffered serious head injuries in Dublin last week has since died, gardaí have said. 

The 26-year-old man was found injured with what is understood to be a suspected gunshot wound in Finglas, Dublin 11 last Thursday. 

A member of the public reported discovering the man at a green area beside Mellowes Avenue and gardaí were called to the scene. 

He was in critical condition in hospital and gardaí said today he has since passed away. 

His remains will be removed to the city morgue in Whitehall where a post-mortem will be carried by the Chief State Pathologist tomorrow. 

Gardaí said the injuries remain unexplained and the results of the post-mortem will determine the course of their investigation.
