Bodies of man and woman discovered in house in Cavan

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.

It is understood that the man and woman had not been seen for a number of days.

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.

Investigations continue.
