Gardaí trying to identify Kilkenny body

Gardai in Kilkenny are appealing for the public's help in identifying the body of a man found in the River Nore yesterday.

The body of the man, in his mid-sixties, was found near Mount Juliet. It is believed he was in the water for over a fortnight.

Post mortem results on the man's body have ruled out foul play in his death.

The man is described as 5 foot 10, of stocky build and well dressed, with thinning hair. The index finger on his right hand has been surgically removed.

Anyone with any information on the man's identity is asked to contact Thomastown Garda Station.
