GARDAÍ NOW SAY they are confident that they have identified the body of a man that was found in a house in Phibsboro in north Dublin and may have been there for the past four years.

A badly decomposed body was discovered by gardaí at 44 Royal Canal Bank Way in Dublin 7 on Wednesday with a public appeal issued for information that may lead to the body being identified.

Gardaí believed that the body may have been there since 2009 and had been examining missing person’s reports and dental records in attempt to identify the man.

Following a public appeal, investigating officers now believe they have identified the man but will not be able to confirm it until a DNA analysis is completed later this week.

“Gardaí would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance,” a spokesperson said this evening.
