Gardaí appeal for witnesses after body found in Dalkey

Gardai say they do not suspect foul play was involved in the death of a man in Dalkey, south county Dublin.

The body of 35-year-old Michael Burke was found in a laneway off Convent Road yesterday morning.

It is understood a passer-by saw the dead man lying near a laneway just off Convent Road in the centre in the town.

Following the results of a post-mortem last night, gardaí say they are not treating the death as suspicious.

It is reported he may have suffered fatal injuries from a metal gate.

They are still appealing to anyone who was in the Convent Road/Coliemore Road area between 10 o'clock on Thursday night and 2am yesterday morning to come forward.
