Hollywood star Maureen O'Hara's daughter Bronwyn Fitzsimons has died at the family's Cork home just a year after her mother passed away.

Bronwyn (71), who has a son Conor Beau Fitzsimons, passed away at the house in Glengarriff and her body was found on Thursday.

Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

She was the daughter of O'Hara (who passed away in October last year at the age of 95) and American film director William Houston Price.

She was named after her mother’s co-star Anna Lee in How Green Was My Valley, and made frequent appearances on TV shows McHale’s Navy and The Virginian and appeared in 1963 movie Spencer’s Mountain.

She spent her time between Ireland, St Crois and the Virgin Islands.
