THE BODIES OF two men have been discovered on neighbouring farm premises in Carlow.

The first body, of a  man believed to be in his early 70s, was found by firefighters responding to reports of a fire at a farmhouse early this morning.

They discovered the remains after arriving on the farm at Ballycormack, near Bagnalstown, at around 4am.

Five hours later at around 9am, a second body was found in a building on a neighbouring farm. The body is thought to be that of a man in his 60s.

Both bodies remain at the scene, which has been sealed off for forensic examination with Garda specialists on their way.
