Man killed in Ballyman named

A man who was killed in Ballymun on St Patrick’s Day has been named.

The 48-year-old was named as Joseph Connolly of Knowth Court, Poppintree, Ballymun.

He was attacked outside a pharmacy on the Ballymun Road at around 9pm on Thursday night. He died the next day after being hospitalised for what Gardai described as critical injuries.

Gardai say that a post mortem examination was carried out and a number of people have been interviewed in connection with the attack.

Sergeant Brian Whelan said last last night: “A post mortem was carried out today by the assistant State Pathologist Dr Curtis on the body of Joseph Connolly, who died following an incident on the Ballymun Rd on Thursday, March 17, 2011. The results of the post mortem have been supplied to the investigation team and investigations are ongoing.”

He added: “Gardai would like to thank witnesses for coming forward and are still appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information to contact them in Ballymun on 01 6664400 or any Garda station.”
