Police to search Finglas park for body

Gardaí (police) are preparing to search an area of a Finglas park after receiving fresh information about the remains of a man whose dismembered arm was found on a Dublin beach.

The arm found on Dollymount strand in 2011 belonged to James Nolan.

The 46-year-old was originally from Finglas and had served jail sentences for rape and burglary.

He was last seen alive in November 2010.

The search at Tolka Valley Park in Finglas is expected to take three weeks.

An inquest found Mr Nolan's arm had been severed after his death.
