Gardaí in Limerick have confirmed a murder inquiry is under way into the death of a 45-year-old man whose body was discovered at home in the city centre on Sunday.

The body of Martin Clancy was found inside a flat on Little O'Curry Street in Limerick city centre by a relative on Sunday at about 6pm.

It's understood that Mr Clancy was discovered with a number of injuries.

A Garda forensic team was called to the scene last night and a post-mortem examination was carried out by State Pathologist Marie Cassidy at Limerick University Hospital today.

Mr Clancy's body remained in the flat overnight, with the flat itself sealed off by investigators.

There are a number of flats and apartment blocks in the area and the particular building is separated into a number of flats.

Gardaí have renewed their appeal for witnesses or to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in or around Little O'Curry Street to contact Henry Street garda station on 061 212400 or any Garda station.
