The body of a male believed to be in his mid 40’s was located at the AES recycling plant in Nenagh shortly before 10:00am this morning.
Reports, yet to be confirmed, state that the man’s body was located by workers shortly after they arrived for work at the AES Recycling Centre at Springford Cross, on the outskirts of Nenagh town.
Nenagh Gardaí were called to the scene and the area was immediately preserved for further examination.
The man, who has not yet been identified, was later taken to the University Hospital in Limerick, where a post mortem examination by the State Pathologist is expected to be being carried out later today.
The scene remains sealed off this evening and Nenagh Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to Telephone: (067) 50450.
UPDATE: The body of the deceased male found at the AES recycling plant in Nenagh by workers after they unloaded rubbish from a truck for sorting, is now believed to be a foreign national who had been living rough in Limerick City.
The State Pathologist Dr Marie Cassidy has conducted a post mortem. The man was sleeping rough and may have gone to sleep in an industrial skip where he probably passed away. Evidence shows that the deceased was already in poor health, according to a Garda source.
Foul play is therefore not suspected and his next of kin are being contacted by the Gardaí.
