A homeless man was discovered dead by charity workers in Temple Bar at around 2am this morning.
The Irish Independent reports that the man was found with no pulse in Adair Lane, a well known shortcut from the Quays to Temple Bar which features the ‘Icon Walk’ outdoor gallery.
The man, who has not been named, was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Dublin City Councillor Christy Burke told Independent.ie: "Crews were going around checking on rough sleepers at around 11pm and one man reported seeing this fella lying there at around 11pm.
A Garda spokesman said that they are investigating the death but it is "not being treated as suspicious at this time."
