Authorities are currently looking into the death of a man in Tipperary, amid concerns that he may have been the victim of an assault over the Christmas period. The deceased, who is not of Irish nationality, was found dead at a property in Kilross, just outside Tipperary Town. Upon the initial discovery, visible injuries on the man raised suspicions, prompting the investigation to consider whether these injuries were the result of an accident, such as a fall, or a deliberate assault.

No signs of forced entry or indication of robbery were found at the property. In response, the authorities have cordoned off the area and will be conducting a thorough forensic examination of the property, in addition to notifying the Office of the State Pathologist. A full post-mortem examination is also scheduled to take place in order to shed light on the circumstances of the man’s death.

Local law enforcement is currently conducting door-to-door inquiries in the surrounding rural area to gather any potential information regarding the events leading up to the man’s death. Their efforts also include determining who the deceased may have been in contact with during the days leading up to the incident, including whether he had been socializing with others in the area. Furthermore, detectives are seeking to establish the last known whereabouts of the man in the Tipperary Town/Kilross areas.

A spokesperson for the authorities mentioned that the circumstances surrounding the man’s discovery are under active investigation, urging anyone with information to come forward. The deceased individual was reportedly employed in the south Tipperary area and was known to frequent Tipperary Town. It’s been noted that he had relocated to Ireland a few years ago for work purposes and is believed to have originated from Eastern Europe, according to a local source.
