The man found dead in Tralee yesterday had accessed homeless services in the town in the past.
Gardaí have sealed off an area in Tralee where the body of a man was found lying on the ground yesterday evening.
The man, believed to be in his 70s, was found at Boherbee, near a row of houses opposite Austin Stack Park.
The scene is being preserved and the body remains at the scene, awaiting the State Pathologist who’s expected to carry out a post mortem later today, to establish the cause of death.
Gardai say that until the results of the post mortem are available, they’re treating the incident as a sudden death.
Una Burns, Head of Communications with Novas Initiatives, a service that helps the homeless confirmed the man had accessed support from Arlington Lodge but not since March.
