A 27-year-old man appeared at a special sitting of Sligo District Court (pictured) on Saturday evening charged with the murder of Jasmine McMonagle in Killygordon, Co Donegal, on Friday.

Richard Burke of Forest Park, Killygordon, appeared before Judge Kevin Kilrane who remanded the accused in custody to appear in court again at Harristown Court next Friday.

The body of Ms McMonagle (28), who was originally from Castlefinn, was found in her home in Killygordon.

She was the mother of two young children.

An application from Mr Burke’s solicitor Frank Dorrian for free legal aid for his client was approved.
