Witness appeal - Investigation into Death of James Nolan

Gardaí investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of James Nolan, formerly of Finglas, are today appealing for the public’s assistance.
On 8th February 2011 a human arm was discovered on Dollymount Beach, Dublin. Through forensic examination this limb was identified as being that of James Nolan.
Gardaí have carried out an extensive investigation since that time which remains ongoing. Recently new information has come into the possession of An Garda Síochána that has identified an ‘area of interest’ located in Tolka Valley Park, Finglas Dublin 11.
As a result of this information and following thorough planning, from today’s date an extensive search will be carried out at this location. The site of the search will be cordoned off and we ask for the public’s assistance as access around the particular area will be restricted.
The public will have access to the park at Tolka Valley Road and at the Ballyboggan Road. There will be no access from the pedestrian gate at the North Road at Tolka Vale.
An Garda Síochána have appointed a Family Liaison Officer in this case and the Nolan Family have been informed of this development.
An Garda Síochána wish to take this opportunity to appeal for witnesses or anyone with information, that can assist with this investigation to contact Finglas Garda Station on 01 6667500, The Garda Confidential Line, 1800 666111 or any Garda station.
