Witness appeal after man goes missing from floating bar on river Liffey
The body of the man was recovered earlier this week after the 25-year-old went missing last weekend.

AN APPEAL FOR witnesses has been issued after the body of a 25-year-old man was pulled from the river Liffey earlier this week.

The man, who has been identified but whose name is not being released, was socialising with friends on what gardaí have described as a floating bar and music venue on the river Liffey in the early hours of Saturday morning when he went missing.

His body was subsequently recovered from the river last Monday by members of the Garda Water Unit during a search operation.

Now an appeal has been issued for information from anyone who was in the vicinity of Sir John Rogerson’s Quay and the Britain Quay area or was on board the boat between the hours of 3am and 8am last Saturday.

Already a number of witnesses have come forward and are assisting with the investigation, gardaí say.

It is understood that the incident is being treated as a tragic one but all aspects of it are being investigated.

Witnesses can contact gardaí at Pearse Street on 01 666 9000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
