GARDAÍ IN IRISHTOWN, Dublin, are looking to speak to any taxi drivers who may have picked up or dropped off people at a senior citizens’ complex where the body of a man was found on Monday.

The body of 63-year-old Thomas Horan was found at the Cambridge Court complex in the early hours of Monday morning and a post-mortem revealed he died as a result of internal injuries. Yesterday, gardaí confirmed they were upgrading their enquiry to a murder investigation.

A 37-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man have been arrested in connection with the incident and are still being held.

This morning gardaí renewed an appeal for any witnesses to come forward and in particular, any taxi drivers who may have picked up or dropped off a man and a woman in the area between 2am and 5am on Monday morning.

Anyone with information can contact Irishtown Garda Station on 01 – 6669600, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111 or any garda station.
