A man's body has been found on a beach in North Dublin.

The discovery was made on Bower Beach in Ballbriggan yesterday, but details are only emerging now.

The man has not yet been identified and Gardaí are trying to contact his family.

They're investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery.

Gardaí say they're also aware of images of the man's body circulating online, and are asking for it not be shared.

A garda spokesperson says: "Gardaí are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the body of a male on Bower Beach in Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.

"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."
