Gerard Tierney's body found in slurry pit near family home
The body of a missing man for almost a week has been found on his own farm.
Gerard Tierney, 40, vanished from Smithboro in Co Monaghan, close to the border with Northern Ireland, on August 29th.
A Garda spokesman said the body of a male found earlier in Smithboro has been identified as Mr Tierney.
It is understood it was recovered by search teams in a slurry or silage pit.
His death is not being treated as suspicious and investigators are examining if it was accidental.
The remains have been removed to Cavan General Hospital for a post-mortem.
