Gardaí are investigating the discovery of a human leg on a beach in Dublin this morning.

The leg was found on Dollymount strand by a walker shortly before 9am and the state pathologist office has been notified.

It is understood the leg, which was washed up this morning, belonged to a woman.

It is the second limb to be found on Dollymount Strand in the last two years, with a man’s arm found on the beach in February 2011.

DNA tests confirmed the arm belonged to convicted rapist James Nolan (46) from Finglas in Dublin, who had not been seen since being released from Portlaoise prison the previous November.
