A post mortem will be carried out later today on the body of the young Derry man who was found dead in the city centre on Sunday night.

The former St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s College pupil’s body was discovered at Bank Place at 10.20pm on Sunday night and his death is currently being treated as “unexplained”.

The 25-year-old’s body was discovered very close to where the young man had been socialising in Derry’s Metro Bar on Saturday night.

Conall had left the bar at closing time at around 2am on Sunday morning.

PSNI Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: “A post mortem examination is due to be carried out on Tuesday 25th August to determine the cause of Conall’s death. Until cause has been determined, his death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ and the circumstances leading up to the discovery of his body are being examined by police.

I am keen to gather as much information as possible about Conall’s movements in the period after he left the Metro Bar early on Sunday morning.

I would particularly like to hear from anyone who was in the Bank Place or Foyle Street areas between 2.15am and 2.45am on Sunday morning. I would ask those people to get in touch with police, the smallest detail just might help us establish where Conall was during this time, what he was doing and who he was with.”

Detectives can be contacted at Strand Road Police Station by calling 101.


Tributes to ‘huge character’ Conall
