A murder investigation is underway after the body of a homeless man was discovered in Kilmainham in Dublin this morning.

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and is being held at Kevin Street Garda Station.

The victim - who was in his 40s - was attacked and his phone was taken.

His body was discovered in a laneway off Madison Road at around 1:30am.

The scene has been preserved for a technical examination and the State Pathologist has been notified.

Gardaí say they're investigating the circumstances surrounding the death.

They're appealing to anyone who was in the area last night between the hours of 11pm and 2am to contact them.
