Members of the public have been asked to help identity a dead man found near Barna in Galway two years ago.

The man's body was discovered by a walker in Rusheen Woods on September 27th, 2014.

His remains are believed to been there for a number of weeks before they were recovered.

The deceased is thought to have been between 30 and 40 years old, around six feet tall, with black hair.

He was wearing a gold bracelet watch (Caravelle by Bulova), a black leather jacket, white and blue 'Athletech' runners, blue jeans and a black belt with metal flower design studs.

The man remains unidentified despite an extensive garda investigation and facial reconstruction project.

Anyone who assist the probe has been asked to contact Salthill garda station on 091-514720 or the garda confidential telephone line on 1800 666 111.
