A murder investigation is under way following a post mortem examination carried out by Dr Margret Bolster, Assistant State Pathologist. Gardaí believe the man died as a result of an assault.

The 49-year-old, who is a native of Romania and was believed to have been working in the construction industry, was last seen at 8.30pm on Thursday evening in the Moore Street area of Dublin.

Superintendent Ian Lackey, who is leading the investigation, said: "We would appeal to anybody who may have seen him in the Moore Street area of the city centre around that time or who may have travelled out to Tallaght on public transport.

"We would also appeal to anybody who may have used the park. It is a popular amenity in relation to jogging and dog walking.

"So anything, however insignificant, please come forward and let us know."
