A man who had been living in a public toilet in Ennis in Co Clare has died.

Joseph Pavelka, 52, from the Czech Republic, came to national public attention last month when a judge described his living conditions as a scandal.

Mr Pavelka moved to Ireland six years ago to work in the construction industry and was homeless. 

Gardaí believe there was nothing suspicious about his death.
