Gardaí cordon off Wexford house after man’s body discovered



THE body of a man aged his 30s has been recovered from a house in Kerlogue Manor in Wexford town in the early hours of this morning.

Gardaí, the National Ambulance Service and the Fire Service attended the scene at the newly constructed housing estate on the Rosslare Road early this morning and gardaí have remained at the scene since.

The man’s remains were removed from the house in recent hours and taken to University Hospital Waterford for a full post mortem examination to be carried out, while the scene was cordoned off by gardaí pending the results.

The discovery is initially being regarded as an “unexplained death” but garda sources believe that any foul play could be definitively ruled out later today. Meanwhile, gardaí are carrying out door to door enquiries.
