The death of Jack Clancy is no longer being treated as suspicious, gardaí say.

The 22-year-old was found dead in his home in Lucan, west Dublin on Sunday and emergency services were called to the house on Woodville Avenue shortly before 3pm.

A postmortem examination of the body was completed by the State Pathologist on Monday, as well as a forensic and technical examination of the scene.

Following the results of the postmortem a spokesman for the gardaí said the death “is no longer being treated as suspicious.”

It is understood the death is considered to be a personal tragedy by gardaí, and the investigation was closed.

The young man’s family were holidaying abroad in Spain when they were informed of the news of Mr Clancy’s death.

It is believed his body was found by a relative in an upstairs bedroom and that he had sustained a wound to his chest. Initially gardaí were treating the incident as suspicious, pending the results of the postmortem examination.

It is understood the young man was an apprentice plumber and lived with his mother, his brother and his mother’s partner. He was a past pupil of the nearby boys secondary school Coláiste Phádraig CBS.
