Gardai not treating death as suspicious

Gardai are confirming they are not treating the death of a man whose body was found in a garden of a home in Glenfarne as suspicious.

A post mortem has confirmed there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of the man who was in his 60s.

The man’s body was found in a garden of a home at McNean Crescent, Glenfarne on Sunday last.

A spokesperson for the gardai said that it appeared that the man “may have been a victim of the elements”.


Local gardai have arrested two people in relation to a number of thefts of property on the Sligo to Dublin train service.

Following an investigation after thefts were reported by commuters in recent weeks, Gardai in Carrick-on-Shannon arrested and charged a man and a woman in relation to the matter.

They will be appearing before court in the coming weeks.


Gardai are also investigating reports that shots were fired in the Gorvagh area of south Leitrim over the weekend.

Initial enquiries suggest that the shots may be connected to “a type of illegal hunting” in the are.

The investigation is ongoing and gardai are asking anyone who notices suspicious vehicles in their locality, especially those appearing to be engaged in ‘lamping’, to immediately contact gardai in Carrick on (071) 9620021.
