Gardai awaiting post mortem results after two men found dead in Limerick within 24 hours

GARDAÍ are conducting two separate investigations following the discovery of the bodies of two men in Limerick within 24 hours.

At around 12 noon today, gardai and an ambulance crew were alerted to a flat at Watergate, in the city, and discovered the body of a man in his “early 50s”, a garda spokesman said.

The man’s body was transferred “to the mortuary at University Hospital Limerick and the local Coroner has been notified”.

“The outcome of a post-mortem examination will determine the course of a Garda investigation into the circumstances of the man’s death,” gardai said.

On Friday at around 4pm gardaí attached to Henry Street along with another ambulance crew were called to Liddy Street, “following the discovery of a body of a man understood to be in late 40s”.

The body was transferred to the UHL mortuary at University Hospital Limerick for a post mortem examination.

The results of the autopsy will determine the course of the garda investigation, gardai said.

Foul play is not suspected in either case.
