In separate incidents in Dublin and in Louth

Two homeless men have died in Dublin and Co Louth in less than 24 hours.

Gardai were called to Our Lady of Lourdes hospital in Drogheda last evening after the sudden death of a man in his 20s.

While a 38 year old homeless man was found dead in Dublin's Temple Bar at around two o'clock this morning.

Gardaí have said they are not treating his death as suspicious.

Councillor Christy Burke says the man may have been dead for some time before an ambulance was called.
