Gardaí have identified the arm of a man found on Dollymount Beach as that of James Nolan, a 46-year-old convicted rapist and burglar who was released from prison last November.

Gardaí have identified the arm of a man found on Dollymount Beach as that of James Nolan, a 46-year-old convicted rapist and burglar who was released from prison last November.

Mr Nolan has not been reported missing but has not been seen since his release.

Gardaí are trying to establish his whereabouts but fear he could have been killed.

This investigation began following the discovery of a man’s arm on Dollymount Beach in Dublin on 8 February last.

A DNA sample was taken, sent to Interpol and British police identified it as that of James Nolan, a 46-year-old rapist.

His DNA had been maintained on a database in the UK after he had been arrested there. There is no DNA here.

Nolan was sentenced to 14 years for rape in 1986.

Following his release from prison he was jailed again for 18 months in 2009 for burglary.

He was released from the Midlands Prison on 22 November 2011 but his whereabouts are unknown. His parents have passed away and his family in Finglas have not seen him.

Gardai are now trying to establish the circumstances in which he lost his arm and although he could still be alive, they fear he could have been killed.

    I do hope and Pray that he is found safe, but by the look’s of things this might not be the outcome. James was only going 18 when he was first arrested and charged with 2 others.
    He did his time a very long time at that, He came out of prison a hooked on drug’s, So much for the Irish Prison Rehabilitation side of things.Some are saying he got what he deserved and are even joking about it. No one deserved to be Murdered .
    If James Nolan has been Murdered then the person’s who have done this will be consumed by this sick act,they too will need Rehabilitation.
    Lets hope they recive the help that James did not.
    My thoughts and prayers go to the Nolan family.

    Kevin.
