SKELETAL REMAINS THAT were discovered in Dundalk in Co Louth yesterday have been found to be historical, according to gardaí.

The state pathologist confirmed today that the remains are historical, after an examination by a forensic anthropologist concluded yesterday that they were human.

The remains are not related to any ongoing investigation, the gardaí said.

They were discovered  after construction workers called the gardaí from a house on Mary Street North.

The remains were found at the rear of the house.
