GARDAI have ruled out suspicious causes following the discovery of two bodies in separate incidents over the weekend.

Gardai were called to a house in Loreto Park, Rathfarnham, Dublin, shortly before 10am yesterday after being alerted that the body of a 52-year-old woman had been found.

Forensics experts arrived at the house after an ambulance was called and the body of Peggy Maloney was then removed.

A post mortem was carried out at Tallaght Hospital and it was confirmed that she died of natural causes.

Meanwhile, in Monaghan foul play was also ruled out after the body of a middle-aged man was discovered at his home on Saturday.

The body of Colm O'Reilly was found at his home at St Mary's Terrace, Castleblaney, by relatives.

A post mortem confirmed he also died of natural causes.
