Investigations launched in Ballybofey and Charlestown

Gardaí are continuing their investigations into all circumstances surrounding the discovery of a body of a man in Ballybofey over the weekend.

The body of the man in his 30s was found at a house in the Cappry area of Ballybofey on Saturday at around 9am.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later and was removed to Letterkenny University Hospital.

Following a post-mortem examination a file will now be prepared for the Coroner.

In a separate investigation in county Mayo, a post mortem will take place today on the body of a man found in a flat in Charlestown.

It’s believed to be that of a Polish national in his fifties who’d been living in the area for some time.

The discovery was made by Gardai yesterday afternoon after the alarm was raised by local people who were concerned he hadn’t been seen in recent days.

The body has been removed to the Mortuary at Mayo General Hospital and the State Pathologist has been informed.
