Gardaí in Ennis are investigating the discovery of a woman’s body in the town early today.

The discovery was made by passers-by at a round 6am on a walkway alongside the River Fergus in the town.

While gardaí say there’s no indication of foul play at this stage of their investigation, the office of the state pathologist has been informed.

The body of the woman, believed to be in her 40s, has been removed from the scene to University Hospital Limerick where a post-mortem examination will be carried out. The scene has also been technically examined.

Gardaí have appealed to anyone who was in the vicinity of the Mill Road, Wood Quay or the River Fergus walk areas of the town last night or early this morning to contact them if they have any information about this woman or how she came to be in the location.

Superintendent Brendan McDonagh of Ennis said: “At this stage in our investigation there is no indication of foul play however the results of the post-mortem will determine the course of our investigation.”

The woman is described as being 5'2 in height, wearing dark grey top, black runners and walked with the aid of a crutch.

Supt McDonagh added: “We are appealing to anyone who may have seen this woman in the Parnell Street, Woodquay, River Walk or Mill Road areas between 10pm yesterday and 6am today to come forward if they have any information that might help us.

“We are also checking CCTV from the local area and would appeal to anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage to come forward.”
