The house where Timothy O'Sullivan was found

This is the house where the body of Timothy O'Sullivan lay undiscovered for 20 years.

It is located at 9 Beecher Street in Mallow, Cork, Ireland.

O'Sullivan's skeletal remains were discovered on January 13th, 2023, after Cork County Council employees entered the derelict property to deal with a reported rodent infestation.

When one of the workers did a sweep of the house, he noticed the shape of human legs underneath a duvet in the bedroom.

By that stage, the house had been vacant for more than two decades.

A subsequent postmortem examination ruled that his death was not suspicious, as there was no evidence of trauma. Furthermore, a sum of £8,000 in Irish punts was found inside the property.

O'Sullivan spent most of his adult life living in the United Kingdom. However, he had moved to Mallow at some point during the 1990s.

Letters and expiration dates on food packaging indicated that he passed away in January 2001 at the age of 61.

O'Sullivan was a quiet, reclusive man who was struggling to cope with the breakup of his marriage. When he disappeared, locals in Mallow presumed that he had moved back to the United Kingdom.

Although his sister and a number of neighbors did visit the house and knock on the front door, they stopped short of forcing their way inside.

Over the years, family members from County Kerry made multiple attempts to track him down. However, they were also under the belief that he had moved back to the United Kingdom, as he had previously talked about doing so.

When they contacted the local police, they were told that he had probably returned to the UK.

During an inquest into his death, one of O'Sullivan's sisters stated that the police failed to carry out a welfare check.

In January 2015, the local council boarded up the house without inspecting the inside of the property.

As a result, O'Sullivan's remains lay undiscovered for eight more years.

This Google Street View image was captured in May 2009. At the time, the house had not yet been boarded up.

Following the discovery of O'Sullivan's remains, a press officer for the Cork County Council said that they had no record of their involvement "in the boarding up of this property." However, during an inquest in October 2023, it was noted that a council employee did request the work.

By 2009, the house had been lying vacant for roughly eight years. Furthermore, at least one of the window panes was broken.
