Gardaí have launched an investigation after a woman died while socialising with friends at the weekend.

The 25-year-old woman was at the Empire Bar on Main Street, Swords, Co Dublin, when she suddenly collapsed on the dance floor before midnight on Friday.

It is believed she may have suffered from an underlying medical condition.

Emergency services were immediately called and paramedics from Dublin Fire Brigade were first on the scene. Despite their best efforts, the young woman was declared dead at the scene.

She was later transferred to Blanchardstown Hospital where a post-mortem was to be performed.

A coroner's report will follow shortly.
