THE BODY of a man believed to be homeless has been found this morning on a street in central Dublin.
It is understood that the man was found dead in a sleeping bag at Ryders Row in the north inner city.
The scene of the tragic discovery is a known area for people to sleep rough, according to the Journal.
The body was found next to a bike shelter near Parnell Street, directly across the road from a number of shops and less than a five minute walk from the General Post Office (GPO) building.
Emergency services were called and a garda van, five gardaí and members of the emergency services attended the scene.
The body was removed shortly after 10.15am.
The area has been preserved to allow for a forensic examination.
