Gardaí have confirmed that the body of a woman who went missing following a school reunion in Co Cork at the weekend has been found.

Frankie Devlin (67) was last seen on CCTV footage at 10.45pm on Saturday evening in Garryvoe, Co Cork.

Her body was recovered in the east Cork town shortly after 3pm on Wednesday.
