A Garda Ombudsman investigation is continuing into the death of Dungarvan man Nathan Kirby in a cell at the local Garda Station last Tuesday. Mr Kirby (21), of Marquis Drive, had been arrested that morning after a public order disturbance. He was taken to Dungarvan Garda Station and was placed in a cell. Around one hour later, he was found unresponsive. Efforts were made to save him but they failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene. A post mortem was carried out on his remains by Deputy State Pathologist Dr Khalid Jaber at at Waterford Regional Hospital last Wednesday. While the results will not be known for several weeks, it’s not thought that foul play is suspected. The Garda Ombudsman Commission investigates complaints against gardai and also any cases where people die while in contact with gardai or shortly after such contact. The Gardaí are legally obliged to inform Commission of such cases whenever they arise. Mr Marquis was laid to rest at St Mary’s Cemetery in Dungarvan on Saturday morning.
