A man's body was discovered near a railway bridge in Dublin last night.

The grim discovery was made beside Park West train station at around 8.30pm yesterday when a person walking their dog came across the body.

This person did not have a mobile phone and shouted up to a group of teenagers to alert gardai as to what had happened.

Gardai arrived at the scene shortly afterwards.

The 26-year-old from Palmerstown had been missing for around 24 hours before his body was discovered.

Gardai in Ballyfermot said today that the death was “not suspicious” and are  liaising with an investigation by the Dublin City Coroner into the death.

“It is a very sad case,” the spokesperson added.

An emergency call was made to the authorities.

Gardai sealed off the area during an inspection of the scene.

Local people said they believed he may be a local man aged in his 20s.

“The community are very shocked and saddened by this death and we extend our sympathy to the young man’s family,”  Dublin City Councillor Daithi Doolan said.

Members of  Dublin Fire Brigade received an emergency call about the finding of the man’s body shortly before 9pm last night.
