Gardai were last night trying to establish the identity of a man who died after being found seriously injured in the car park of a Dublin apartment complex.

The victim was discovered in the underground area at Carnegie Court Apartments on North Street, Swords, at 6am on Tuesday and was taken to Beaumont Hospital in a serious condition.

Trauma

He is described as white, with brown hair and of medium build and was believed to be in his late 30s or early 40s.

The man, who was carrying no form of identification, suffered blunt force trauma but it is not yet known how he sustained his injuries.

He was pronounced dead at Beaumont Hospital on Tuesday night.

A source said gardai had no idea who the victim was and were making efforts to identify him.

He was wearing a white Slazenger T-shirt, navy tracksuit bottoms and size eight black Skechers runners.

Gardai said a post-mortem examination conducted by the state pathologist is due to take place this morning.

A spokesperson told the Herald last night that their enquiries were continuing and the identification process had yet to be concluded.

Photos of the man have been circulated among officers in a bid to find out who he is.

Gardai have appealed for anyone who was in the area between 10pm on Monday and 6am on Tuesday to contact them at Swords Garda Station on 01 6664700, the Garda Confidential Line on 1 800 666 111 or any garda station.

Labour councillor Duncan Smith said the mystery of the man's identity in a built-up area of north Dublin was "troubling".

"Anyone who has mentioned it to me has been shocked," he said.
