AN Irishman has died in a suspected drowning in Australia.

Kevin Lambe, from Tullamore, Co Offaly, passed away at the weekend.

A family friend told the Irish Independent that they are currently awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination, which is expected to be carried out over the coming days.

Mr Lambe, pictured, is believed to be in his 30s and is from a well-known family in the town.

Local area councillor Brendan Killeavy said last night that the entire community was in "shock".

"They are a well-known local family in Tullamore, it is a tragedy."
