A GARDA investigation has been launched following the discovery of two bodies in a house in County Cavan.
The remains, believed to be that of a man and a woman both aged in their 40s, were discovered in a residence in the Cloverhill area last night, Sunday 7 February.
According to a statement from Gardaí, the bodies were found after officers were called to the scene at around 8pm last night.
The premises have been sealed off awaiting a technical examination, and the Office of the State Pathologist has been notified of the sad discovery.
Post-mortem examinations on both bodies are due to be carried out today, with Gardaí investigating the circumstances surrounding the pair's deaths.
The results of the post-mortem examinations will determine the course of the investigation.
A source told The Irish Times that there were no "obvious signs" that their deaths were the result of foul play, and there is a possibility they could have died suddenly from a gas leak or another similar cause.
