Gardaí appeal for information on man's body found in ditch last week

Gardaí are appealing for information following the murder of a 32-year-old man in a suspected knife attack in Dublin last week.

The man's body was discovered in a ditch in county Dublin, but it is believed he was killed at a different location.

The body of Michal Kurek was discovered with multiple stab wounds, in a laneway off the Ballyboughal to Oldtown Road in Dublin on Friday morning.

Mr Kurek was originally from Poland but had been living in Blanchardstown, West Dublin for a number of years, however, it is understood he had recently been living of no fixed abode.

Gardaí are asking for anyone with information about his recent movements to contact the incident room at Balbriggan Garda Station in Dublin, or any Garda station.
