A member of the public discovered the woman’s body at St Michan’s Church, off Church Street in Dublin 7 and notified gardaí at around 6am this morning.

Gardaí attended and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The area was sealed off and a technical examination of the scene is currently under way.
