GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal for information following the discovery of a seriously injured woman on the outskirts of Carlow town yesterday.

The woman, who is in her 50s, was found on the grounds of Pollerton Castle yesterday afternoon. She was taken to St Luke’s Hospital in Kilkenny and is described as being in a serious condition. The scene was preserved for a technical examination.
