GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING THE murder of Michal Kurek in county Dublin are renewing their appeal for information.

Michal was a 33-year-old Polish man whose body was found at Grange, Ballyboughal, on 4 August.

A post-mortem examination established that Michal died as a result of stab wounds.

An appeal has been renewed today by gardaí and charity Crimestoppers. A reconstruction of Michael’s last moments will be aired on Crimecall tonight on RTÉ 1.

Speaking today, Detective Inspector Eddie Carroll, Balbriggan Garda Station said they are keen to speak to people in the Dublin 15 area.

“In August, Michal was murdered and we are appealing for anyone with information or anyone who saw Michael between Thursday 3 or Friday 4 August to come forward.

“Based on Michal’s last known movements, we are particularly keen to hear from people residing in the areas of Ongar, Clonsilla, Coolmine, Hartstown and Huntstown. We are also appealing to members of the Polish community. Crimestoppers posters have been designed in the Polish language, to assist any witnesses.”

“I genuinely believe that members of the public have information in relation to the murder and I am asking these individuals to come forward. Information can be given to investigating gardaí at Balbriggan Garda Station on 01 6664500 or any garda station.

“If a member of the public prefers to give the information without identify themselves, they can call Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.”
