A woman in her 60's who is understood to have lain dead in a house at Brookfield Lawn in the Lough for at least a year has been named locally.

Joyce O'Mahony's body was found yesterday afternoon.

The woman in her 60's was found after pest control services were called to a property nearby.

They then went to another home which they thought was the source of a vermin problem.

Pest control services contacted Gardaí after finding the remains on the property and emergency services arrived at the scene.

The area was sealed off and investigation was launched by Gardaí.

There was no sign of forced entry at the house and foul play has been ruled out.

A post-mortem will take place on Joyce O'Mahony's body today and the coroner has been notified.
