People throughout Enniscorthy town are in shock this week following the tragic deaths of two well-known local residents over the weekend.

The bodies of a male and female were discovered in two separate locations in the Shannon area of the town on Sunday.

The man and woman, who were both in their 40s, died in tragic circumstances.

Their remains were discovered in houses located within a few hundred yards of each other. However, gardai confirmed to this newspaper that their deaths were unrelated.

The discovery of the first body was made at around 10 a.m. while the remains of the second person were discovered at 4.30 p.m.

It's believed one of the deceased was a member of the Travelling community and both of them were very well known in the Enniscorthy area.

Enniscorthy gardai said members attended the scenes of both 'tragic incidents'.
