Gardaí have confirmed that the death of man in Ennistymon yesterday is not suspicious.

A post-mortem examination has concluded at University Hospital Limerick and Gardaí are satisfied that foul play was not a factor in the man’s death.

The 48-year-old from the Midlands collapsed close to the Falls Hotel in Ennistymon at around 5.00pm yesterday.

Gardaí, ambulance and fire crews responded to the incident which was originally reported as man in cardiac arrest.

Fire service first responders administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until ambulance paramedics arrived. Soon afterwards however, the man was pronounced dead.

The scene where the man was found was sealed off and preserved overnight.

The man’s body was removed to University Hospital Limerick where a post-mortem examination was carried out this afternoon.

Gardaí have confirmed that while they don’t have the final report from the post-mortem, they are satisfied that death was not suspicious.

Gardaí are now treating the incident as a ‘sudden death’ and will prepare a file for the County Coroner who will hold an inquest at a later date.

The man’s family have been notified of the tragedy.
