The discovery of man's body in Dalkey in South County Dublin this morning is not being treated as suspicious.

It is thought the body may have been there since last night but was only discovered by a passerby this morning.

A technical examination is being carried out and there are up to six garda vehicles at the scene along with an ambulance.

Gardaí are now at the scene, which has been sealed off for a forensic exam.

Another local said that Mick would "always stop to say hello".

He said: "I knew him from the shop and from being around in Dalkey".

Investigation underway following discovery of man's body in Dublin

Gardai are investigating if the man accidentally suffered fatal injuries to his abdomen from the top of a metal gate as he attempted a shortcut between Convent Road and Coliemore Road.

Gardaí have yet to confirm a cause of death, and confirmation will only be given after a postmortem examination.

The body of the man, believed to be in his 30s, was made by a woman in a laneway in Dalkey.

The office of the State Pathologist has been notified and Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses, or anyone who may have been in the laneway on Thursday night or early Friday morning, to contact them at Dún Laoghaire Garda station on (01) 6665000.
