It is a Giant Avail. I see you're in Ireland. The database I use to search in is for the USA and Giant bikes may not be the same as Ireland. However, it appears to be an aluminium framed bike from around 2013.

Thanks for the reply, I'm just wondering type and year. The prices seem to vary quite severely and I can't seem to find the model to match

One thing I noticed is that the seat stays are offset and join the seat tube lower than the top tube. My best guess is an Avail 4 from around 2012. Can your friend tell you the year? Or the serial number? Or are you trying to replace the bike without asking?
