GARDAI have appealed for witnesses over the drowning of a man in the Grand Canal 10 days ago.

The man, who was in his early 20s, died after getting into the water in the Portobello area of Dublin in the early hours of Saturday June 18.

Gardai said he was about 5'8" tall, with black hair and was wearing a black and blue shirt when he got into difficulty while swimming at about 4.25am.

It is understood a number of other people were in the area at the time as well as passing motorists and people walking home.

Officers said the man's death is not being treated as suspicious but they appealed for anyone who was in the Portobello area between 4am and 4.45am on June 18 to contact them in Terenure, any Garda station or to use Garda confidential lines.
