Gardaí are investigating the circumstances surrounding the unexplained death of a man in his 50s in Dublin.

At around 5pm on Wednesday, March 3, gardaí said they went to a dwelling in the Ballastown area of Lusk. The body of the man, a Polish national, was found in the bedroom.

A post-mortem took place at Dublin City Morgue yesterday, but the details are not being released for operational reasons.

Gardaí said the scene at the property has been preserved and examinations by the Garda Technical Bureau and Divisional Scenes of Crime personnel are ongoing.

An incident room has also been established at Balbriggan Garda Station, and a family liaison officer has been appointed to get in touch with the man’s family.

Gardaí said that a number of witness statements have already been compiled, and they are now examining CCTV footage. 

Investigating gardaí believe that deceased man was last seen alive on Monday evening, March 1 on Skerries Road, Commons Lane or Hill Lane, Lusk between 6pm and 8pm.

 At that time, he was wearing navy blue tracksuit bottoms and a black zip-up bomber jacket. 

He was also carrying a distinctive ‘Lidl Deluxe’ shopping bag with black and white writing on it.
