Gardai are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a body of a man yesterday in Monaghan.

The discovery was made yesterday morning on the grounds of a hotel just outside Carrickmacross.

It's understood the 25-year-old man was an asylum seeker from Nigeria who had just recently arrived in Ireland.

He was found on the grounds near the entrance of the M Hotel with suspicious injuries to his head.

Gardaí are trying to establish if he was assaulted or fallen or sustained his injuries accidentally.

A post-mortem on the man's body which is due to take place today will determine if the man had been a victim of foul play.

The hotel, which is being used as a direct provision centre for asylum seekers is situated 5km outside Carrickmacross. It provides 35 rooms for up to 124 asylum seekers.
