Two Unidentified Bodies Located In South Tipperary.

A garda investigation is under way, this afternoon, following the discovery of two bodies, that of an elderly man and an elderly woman, at a private residence in a house in south Co. Tipperary.
As of yet, there is no established cause of death, however it is also understood there is no indication of any visible foul play, as of this time.

Following locals having raised certain concerns, the bodies were located by investigating Gardaí in a house 3.5km from the village of Cloneen, situated between Fethard and Mullinahone, close to the Tipperary-Kilkenny border, shortly before 4:00pm this evening.

It is understood that the bodies may have lain undiscovered at that location for some time, possibly several weeks.

A formal identification has yet to be carried out on the remains, however Gardaí believe they are those of a couple aged in their 70s.

Members of the Garda Technical Bureau are due to perform a forensic examination of the scene, while the office of the State pathologist has also been informed. Tomorrow, the bodies are expected to be removed to University Hospital Waterford (UHW) for a full post mortem examination

Gardaí at Clonmel are leading the investigation.
