Clare Gardaí continues to investigate all the circumstances following the discovery of two bodies at a Kilnaboy house on Thursday afternoon.


The bodies of the deceased have since been removed from the scene and conveyed to the morgue at University Hospital Limerick.
Post-mortem examinations are due to take place by Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margot Bolster at a later stage today, the outcome of which will determine the course of the Garda investigation.
The scene remains preserved for an examination by the Garda National Technical Bureau.
