Gardaí are investigating the death of a homeless man in Dublin's Temple Bar.

The man, who was a foreign national aged in his 50s, was found on Cow's Lane.

He was pronounced dead shortly before 9am this morning.

It is understood he was a regular user of services at Merchant's Quay Ireland and had been ill in recent weeks.

Gardaí say they do not suspect foul play. The death comes just over a month after homeless man Jonathan Corrie was found dead close the Dáil.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke said it is a sad day for the city.

"It was met with sadness and with darkness this morning when I heard again, because it's a spot where my own group, Inner City Helping Homeless, feed homeless people on a regular basis," he said.

"It's a very sad day for the family of that individual."
