A man found dead in a house in east Mayo at the weekend is believed to have been the victim of a small house fire.

The body of the victim, David Molloy (52), who lived at St. Gerard's Crescent, Ballyhaunis, was found by neighbours who became worried because they had not seen him for a number of days.

There was evidence of smoke damage to the accommodation where Mr Molloy, a single man, was living.

A post mortem has been conducted at Mayo University Hospital. Mr Molloy will be laid to rest tomorrow in his native Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon, following Mass in St. Nathy's Cathedral
