Family pay touching tribute to 'one of a kind' man found dead in Limerick flat

Heartbreaking tributes have been paid to a man in his 40's whose body was discovered at an apartment in Limerick on Sunday evening.

The deceased man, who has been named locally as Martin Clancy, was discovered by his brother at a flat on Little O'Curry Street in the city at 6pm yesterday afternoon.

Taking to social media, his sister-in-law Jennifer Heelan, said: “We're so bad at the moment.”

She added: “RIP Martin, my brother-in-law you were one of a kind with heart of gold.

"You’ll be missed from your brother James, me and your three beautiful nieces who you loved to bits xxx.”

A source told the Irish Mirror that the grim find "looked like foul play" and another said the victim had "lost a lot of blood".

Gardai will decide today on whether to launch a murder investigation.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to piece together how the man died.

Local non-party councillor John Loftus said: "The whole street’s blocked off.

"[Little O’Curry Street] is kind of a thoroughfare, it’s all two storey and three storey apartments.

"It’s a pretty quiet place, a very quiet area.

"I’ve lived here for years - it’s only a street or two away from my home.”

Mr Loftus added that “nothing like this has happened” in that region of the city.

He said he 'initially thought it might have been someone found out in the cold'.

"Last time there was anything like that (murder) was years ago.

"It†™s mostly just rented accommodation and everyone just keeps to themselves.

"I’ve lived in the city centre and it’s one of the quietest places I’ve ever lived in my life."

If Gardai launch a murder investigation it will be the fourth violent death since around New Year’s Eve.

A Garda spokesman said: "Gardaí in Henry Street are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the body of a male in his 40s at a flat on Little O’Curry Street shortly before 6pm this evening.

"The scene has been preserved and the offices of the state pathologist have been notified.

"The services of the Garda Technical Bureau have also been requested.

"Gardaí wish to appeal for witnesses or to anyone who may have seen anything unusual or suspicious in or around Little O’Curry Street to contact Henry Street Garda Station on 061 212400, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station. "
