The skull was caught in fishing nets near Lambay Island.

 
Gardai in Dublin have renewed their appeal for information about the discovery of an unidentified body fifteen years ago.

On the 6th February 2006, a human skull was caught in fishing nets off the coast of Lambay Island and landed at Rush Harbour.

A thorough investigation was conducted which included the creation of a clay model head of what the person would have looked like when alive.

A DNA profile was also generated and a number of people came forward and volunteered their DNA for comparison, but the body has never been identified.

Investigating Gardaí at Balbriggan are renewing their appeal for help to identify this person.
