Gardai seek man over violent death

Gardai probing the violent death of a man are anxious to speak to another man who was in his company the night before he died, writes Fiona Donnelly.

Don Geasley's body was discovered in a pool of blood in his rented home in Masseytown, close to Macroom town centre, Co Cork, on Thursday morning.

The 42-year old had sustained serious head injuries.

A post-mortem concluded that he died as a result of a violent assault.

Gardai are now searching for a man who is in his late-20s or early-30s who was with him late on Wednesday night. They believe he may have information which could assist with their investigation into Mr Geasley's death. Gardai have confirmed that the deceased, who was originally from the Common's Road area of Cork city, died after being the victim of a violent assault. They have not upgraded their investigation to a murder inquiry.

Detectives have been conducting door-to-door inquiries in the area.
