A murder investigation has been launched after a 65-year-old ‘vulnerable’ man was found dead in his Balbriggan home yesterday.

Christopher Hall lived alone at Dun Saithne Green and his body was discovered in the downstairs of his house.

Superintendent Paul Franey from Balbriggan Garda Station said Christopher was found “with obvious significant head and upper body injuries” and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Superintendent Franey said this evening: “Christopher lived alone at the house, he was a quiet man who kept to himself and was vulnerable due to a medical condition.

“I have commenced a murder investigation into the death of Christopher, I have appointed a Senior Investigating Officer and an incident room has been established here at Balbriggan Garda Station.”

The scene at the house has remained sealed off today and is “subject to an ongoing technical examination by the Garda Technical Bureau.”

Superintendent Franey also confirmed that a post mortem began this afternoon and said “the results of the post mortem will assist in the direction of this criminal investigation.”

He appealed for anyone who was in the Dun Saithne Green, Dun Saithne Crescent or wider Dun Saithne area between 8pm Tuesday 23rd November and 2pm yesterday Wednesday 24th November, to contact Balbriggan Garda station whether they believe they saw anything of interest or not.

He also appealed to residents or persons with cars parked in the Dun Saithne area who may have cctv or dashcam footage to come forward with that footage.

And anyone with any information on the murder of Christopher Hall should contact Investigating Gardaí at Balbriggan Garda Station 01-6664500, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

Superintendent Franey also asked for the family’s privacy to be respected.
