Gardaí have confirmed that the skeletal remains that washed up on the Fanore coast last month were those of a woman buried at sea in 2016.
Superintendent John Galvin of Kilrush Garda Station said the family of the deceased have been informed and they are no longer investigating the matter.
He said the deceased woman had been buried off the West coast following her death in 2016.
The remains were found by walkers on September 19 last at Poulsallagh in Fanore.
Following a post mortem and DNA analysis the identity of the deceased was established and contact was subsequently made with the family.
