Gardaí in Carrickmacross are investigating the discovery of a body in unexplained circumstances on Tuesday, 1st November 2022. A Garda press release issued on Tuesday afternoon confirmed the following: At approximately 8am, following a call from a member of the public, Gardaí discovered a man’s body on the curtilage of a premises on the Kingscourt Road at Lossets, County Monaghan.

The scene was preserved and a technical examination was conducted by the Garda Technical Bureau. The office of the State Pathologist was notified and results of a post-mortem examination will determine the course of the investigation. It has been widely reported that Gardaí were called to the premises on Halloween night after an altercation occurred although the argument was believed to have settled down at that point.

It is understood that the deceased man was found with a head injury. It is not clear whether the two incidents are connected. National media outlets reported that the deceased man (25) was from an African country and was one of the residents in the M Hotel, which provides accommodation for asylum seekers.
