Gardaí have said there was no foul play involved in the death of a 37-year-old woman whose body was found at her home in Co Carlow last night.

Family members of the woman’s family became concerned when they hadn’t heard from her in a number of days and asked a neighbour and mutual friend in the Graiguecullen area of Carlow town to check on her house.

At about 9.45pm last night, the neighbour found the woman’s body in an upstairs bedroom in her house at Rochford Manor.

Her remains were brought to Waterford Regional Hospital this morning. The house remained sealed off by gardaí and a forensic examination was carried out by members of the Garda Technical Bureau.

An autopsy on the woman’s body was performed by deputy state pathologist Dr Michael Curtis.

A Garda spokesman said they were satisfied, based on the autopsy, that no foul play was involved. “It’s not a suspicious death and we are not looking for anybody in relation to it,” he said.
