Gunshot wounds

A MAN was treated in hospital for apparent gunshot wounds to the hand after an incident in Inchicore.

However the man has refused to co-operate with gardai who were investigating how the injury happened. The man presented to Tallaght Hospital on Tuesday night with wounds to his hand. He initially told medical staff that he had been shot, but when gardai arrived he refused to speak to them. Gardai searched the area of the alleged incident but did not find any evidence of a shooting.

Water contaminated

The contamination of Roscommon's water supply is due to an animal-related organism, tests have revealed. Up to 6,000 people are being affected by the discovery of cryptosporidium. A 'boil water' notice has been in place since April 25.

The contamination can cause cryptosporidiosis – a gut infection caused by a parasite and resulting in a diarrhoea-type illness.

ID found near body

Skeletal remains found near a riverbank are believed to be that of a Polish man, who was reported missing last year. Clothing and an identity card belonging to David Biegalski were found yesterday close to where the skeleton was discovered in Limerick on Tuesday.

Mr Biegalski (25) was reported missing a week after he was last seen on July 12, 2012. DNA sampling may take up to eight weeks to yield a confirmed result on the skeleton's identity.
