A homeless agency has launched a review into the murder of a man at a Dublin city flat just over a week ago.

It's believed 28 year-old Tony Dempsey's remains may have been lying in the flat at Kevin Barry House on Coleraine Street in the north inner city for around a week before being discovered on September 12th.

It's believed he was violently assaulted at the property that is managed by the Peter McVerry Trust, and a murder investigation is underway by Gardaí.

The homeless charity is carrying out it's own internal review after saying its tenant, who was not the victim, had been "struggling to manage the front door" and that people who had no interest in the property had gained entry.

It's believed the flat was being used as a drug den and that drug users continued to come and go at the property even after Mr Dempsey's death.

The Irish Times reports the Dublin Region Homeless Executive is to conduct its own review into the case to find out what happened and to identify potential lessons to be learned.
