GARDAÍ HAVE USED DNA analysis to identify human remains found in Rathmines as those of missing man Stephen Corrigan. 

Stephen, who would have been 57-years-old this year, disappeared in November 2011. He was originally from the Cork Street area of Dublin 8.

His remains were discovered by a member of the public in April of this year on the Lower Rathmines Road. 

Gardaí issued several appeals to locate Stephen through Crimecall in May 2012, January 2013 and May 2014.

He has been identified through DNA analysis compared with a familial DNA sample provided by his mother.

Stephen’s mother is now deceased, as is his only other known blood relative.
