Joseph Deacy a 21-year-old, from St Albans in England was found with head injuries outside a house at Gortnasillagh, Swinford on Saturday 12 August 2017 by a local man out for an early morning cycle who raised the alarm. Joseph was later transferred to Beaumont Hospital, where he was pronounced dead the following day. In November two men were arrested in connection with Joseph's death but were released without charge. Joseph has a very violent death as he suffered numerous kicks to the head. On Monday, January 29 Joseph's death featured on RTE's Crimecall programme.
Its apparent to me that somebody knows who killed Joseph and why are they not coming forward. My heart goes out to his poor family on the UK.
