GardaÍ investigating the sudden death of a man in Dublin city centre have appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

The man, who was in his late 30s, was found collapsed on Westland Row at around 7.30am yesterday.

The dead man, who was wearing an orange jacket, was seen walking up the street, near Pearse Street train station, towards Lincoln Place before he was found collapsed on the roadway.

A passing motorist who spotted the man lying on the ground immediately stopped and administered CPR as he waited for the emergency services.

The man was rushed by ambulance to St James's Hospital. However, despite the best efforts of medical staff, the man was pronounced dead.

A post-mortem examination on the man's remains is due to be carried out today to determine the cause of death.

Gardaí investigating the man's death said a number of people were on the street at the time and have appealed for them to come forward to help them with their inquiries.

Specifically, they are appealing for anyone who was on Westland Row between 7.25am and 7.45am yesterday and who saw the man or who can assist them with their investigation to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 6669000.
