THREE dogs which killed a Co Galway woman outside her son’s home two years ago were not on the restricted dog breeds list, an inquest has heard.

The three Presa Canario guard dogs – resembling a mastiff-type breed – had been allowed to run free on the home of Martin and Sheryl McDonagh, the coroner’s court in Galway heard on Thursday.

Teresa McDonagh (64) died of "massive" injuries when she was attacked after she called to her son’s home to visit her grandchildren in June, 2017.
