This morning.

At the corner of Cook Street and the R108, near St Audeon’s Park, Dublin 8.

Donal O’Dowd saw a group of people appear to check the pulse of a man lying on the street, while a man next to him was being consoled.

It’s believed the man was homeless but this hasn’t been confirmed.

At around 7.50am, the Dublin Fire Brigade arrived and, soon after, a blanket was placed over the man’s body. An ambulance and gardai then arrived.

A request for information has been lodged with the Garda Press Office.

Update:
The man was in his 40s, originally from Poland and was homeless, it has been confirmed by Inner City Helping Homeless (ICCH)

Is there any chance you could do a post about this new club. I’m looking for singers, or musicians or something a bit different to contact me via the Facebook page.
