The body of a woman was discovered last month.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Westport, Co. Mayo.

The woman’s body was discovered on Saturday 31 July at an apartment on Castlebar Street.

Gardaí have since arrested two men – one in his 50s, and the other in his 30s – in connection with the woman’s death.

Both men are being detained at Castlebar Garda Station under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

The woman was in her 40s. A postmortem of her body has now been completed. The results of the postmortem are not being made public due to operational reasons.

Gardaí are continuing with their ongoing investigation into the case.
