Galway Gardaí have enlisted the help of international agency Interpol to identify the body of a man discovered in Connemara last week.
The body was found by a passerby on Tra Dhireain Huston in Lettermullen last Thursday afternoon and it appears from initial investigations that the body may have been in the water for a number of days.
The man is described as being 6’ 2” and of a medium to strong build. He was wearing a Ralph Lauren dark blue and white check shirt, blue Primark jeans, Nike grey and blue runners (size ten) and grey/black socks.
The body was removed to the University Hospital Galway, where a full post mortem examination took place.
Any person who may be in a position to identify the man is asked to contact the Gardaí at Salthill on 091-514720, the Garda Confidential line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
