The body of a man has been discovered in suspicious circumstances at a house in Tipperary last night.

It's understood the man's body was found soaked in blood in a bathroom in the house, which is located on McDonagh Street, Nenagh, shortly after before 6pm.

A source said the man's body was discovered in the shower of the bathroom.

Gardai did not release any information about the man's injuries.

An ambulance crew was dispatched to the house, but the man (36) was produced dead at the scene by a local doctor.

The man's body will remain at the scene overnight.

The house has been sealed off by Gardai for a forensic examination.

The office of the State Pathologist has been informed and a preliminary examination of the man's body will take place at the scene before been removed to University Hospital Limerick tomorrow for a full post mortem.

A Garda spokesman said: "The body of a male was discovered in a house on McDonagh Street at around 6pm by a person. Gardai attended the scene and a local doctor pronounced the man dead at the scene. The body remains at the scene. The State Pathologist's office has been notified."

The spokesman added: "We are examining all aspects as to how the man may have died. It is being treated as a suspicious death at the moment."
