Discovery of a Body, Bower Beach, Balbriggan, 20th April 2023

Issue Date: 21 April 2023

Gardaí are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the body of a male on Bower Beach in Balbriggan, Co. Dublin, yesterday Thursday 20th April 2023.

Gardaí are currently following a number of definite lines of enquiry and are making efforts to contact the family members of the deceased.

An Garda Síochána is not in a position to provide further details at this time.

An Garda Síochána is aware of certain images of the deceased male on the beach being circulated on social media messaging apps. An Garda Síochána is appealing to the public not to share these images.

The circulation of such images is not only disrespectful to the family of the deceased but is also unhelpful to the Garda investigation.
