An appeal for information has been launched after the death of a man in Dublin, which appears to have all the hallmarks of a murder.

The man in his 40s, named locally as Alan Hall, was found dead in "unexplained and suspicious" circumstances at a house on Bluebell Avenue, Dublin 12, yesterday morning by fire brigade personnel attending a blaze at the property.

The scene remains sealed off for a technical examination.

Superintendent Seamus Dalton of Clondalkin Garda Station says officers are keeping an open mind in their investigation.

He said: "The preliminary findings of the post-mortem examination are not being released at this time for operational reasons.

"Gardaí at Clondalkin Garda Station are conducting a criminal investigation into all the circumstances surrounding the unexplained death of this male."

Detectives are appealing to anyone who was near the house on either Sunday night or yesterday morning to contact them.

They're also appealing to any motorists who may have dashcam or video footage from the area to contact Clondalkin Garda Station at 01-6667600, the Garda Confidential Number at 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
