A MAN has been found dead after a house fire.

The elderly man's body was recovered from inside the house which is a detached cottage about 8km from Trim, Co Meath this morning.

A garda spokesman said it was a "very small fire, there was no structural damage," and they were satisfied it was accidental."

A post mortem will be carried out later to determine how the man died and whether the fire was the cause of his death.
