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.

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

“Seen this on the way home from work on Monday evening, at the junction of Pleasant and Heytesbury streets in Dublin 8 (facing an easterly direction) at around 5.30pm and not sure exactly what I’m seeing here… either Ireland has a secret space programme we don’t know about or the “plane” on the left has an unusual trajectory relative to the one on the right..”

This morning

On the Mill Road in The Tenters, Dublin 8.

“It’s that time of year again for The Tenter’s favourite anonymous graffiti artist to create his/her Merry Dickmas mural on Mill Street, Dublin 8, as the awning currently remains unblemished!”

“To paraphrase Nick Cave, we call upon the artist to explain… It’s not Christmas until it’s Dickmas!”

“From Noelle, Laura & Aisling, and neighbours Emma, Sinead, Alison, Paul, Keith, Niall, Aoife, and everyone else in The Tenters who appreciates the stunning work of this reclusive genius.”
