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)
