The 35-year-old was found dead in a house at Ardoyne Place in the early hours of Saturday.

Two men, aged 26 and 31, were remanded in custody accused of his murder on Wednesday but the police investigation is continuing.

The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway, said: "With the agreement of Eamonn's family we are able to release a photo of him today.

"The manner of Eamonn's death has been extremely difficult for them to bear."

"Detectives have been able to charge two men with murder, thanks in part to the assistance of the local community," DCI Galloway continued.

"I am asking today for the community's help again. We are issuing a photo of a blue Berghaus-type jacket which is of interest to us.

"We believe it has been dumped in the Ardoyne or Oldpark areas last Friday night or early Saturday. If anyone comes across this jacket, I would ask them to contact police."

Detectives are asking anyone who was in the area between 9pm on Friday and 4am on Saturday and saw anything of note to contact them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact them on 028 9025 9542 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
