A source close to Mr Shine Dixon’s family confirmed his remains were identified in recent weeks. They said it came “as a huge surprise” to the family.

A Garda spokesman said: “This investigation is being conducted by the French authorities. Officers from the Garda Missing Persons Bureau are liaising with investigators in Perpignan.”
