Barry Duggan

A MAN will be brought to court today in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found on a beach last week.

The 39-year-old man is expected to be charged with the murder of Deirdre McCarthy (43), from Ballyvaughan, Co Clare, and will appear at Ennis District Court. The chief suspect was last night being held at Ennis garda station, following his arrest on Tuesday.

Ms McCarthy's body was found washed up at Fanore beach, Co Clare, last Thursday -- three days after she was reported missing.

She was last seen alive on March 27 around 11.30pm, after a night socialising in her local village. The alarm was raised by her family the following day.
