A DUBLIN man and his fiancee found dead from a suspected drugs overdose in a house in a Co Wexford village.

The discovery - at a property in the Woodlands estate - is understood to have been made by a relative of the young man, who raised the alarm.

Emergency services rushed to the scene but it’s understood that the pair had died some time earlier.

A Garda spokesman last night said the deaths are believed to be drugs-related.

He said that Gardai are not treating the deaths as suspicious.

The community in Clonroche has been left in shock, one local councillor told the Herald.

Cllr Mary Farrell said news of the young couple’s deaths is “absolutely heartbreaking”.

“This is a tragedy for Clonroche, Enniscorthy, Wexford and Dublin.

“A young girl now has to grow her up without her mother, it is devastating.

“The Government needs to step up their spending in areas related to tackling the drug problem head on. It is an issue that is affecting rural areas as well as Dublin,” she added.
