Tributes have been flooding in for a homeless man who was found dead in Dublin’s Phoenix Park on December 23.

The man has been named by a local charity as Michail Mois.

Volunteering group 'Homeless Mobile Run' posted the update on their Facebook page with the message: "So sad to hear another one of our friends passed (away on) December 23 in the Phoenix Park, RIP Michail Mois, so sad."

Underneath a photo, hundreds of messages were posted in tribute to Michail who has been described as a "beautiful man, with a gentle smile".

"RIP what a tragedy," one person wrote. "Thank you for giving him a name and face, he's not a faceless statistic."

"So sad only a young lad... had to die on the streets…may he rest in peace," added another.

"Shocking, shameful that this young lad has lost his life on our streets….Nobody should be homeless in this day and age, much less at Christmas," added another.
