Reports are coming in that the bodies of an elderly couple have been found in the Convoy area.

No other details are available at this time.

A Garda spokesperson was quoted as saying:

"This is very fresh and we simply cannot say at this stage how they died.

"A full examination of the scene will be carried out to determine what direction our investigation will take."

UPDATE: It is understood that garda investigations and lines of enquiry  are pointing towards a terrible accident at the family home, possibly due to a fall, but this has not been confirmed yet.
