Foul play 'highly unlikely' in Ballyduff death

Sinead Kelleher

Gardaí are not treating the death of an 85-year-old woman in Ballyduff as suspicious after her remains were discovered in her home in the Bishopscourt estate on Tuesday morning, at around 11.30am.

The woman was living alone in the house and  Gardaí cannot rule definitively on her death pending the outcome of a post mortem that is being carried out today (Wednesday), but are confident the elderly woman died as the result of natural causes.
