HUMAN REMAINS HAVE been discovered by gardaí during a search at a site in Co Monaghan as part of an ongoing investigation into the death of James Nolan.

The discovery was made at Lough Na Glack near Carrickmacross. Searches at the site have been ongoing since Tuesday. The local coroner and the state pathologist have been notified.

The remains have yet to be identified and enquires are ongoing. Searches at the site are continuing and no further information is available at this time.

As part of the investigation, human remains were previously found in Tolka Valley Park in Dublin.

Nolan, 46, of Fairlawn Road in Finglas, had not been seen since his release from prison in 2010 after serving a term for burglary.

In February 2011, a human arm discovered on Dollymount Beach in Dublin was identified through DNA testing as that of the convicted criminal.

In 1986, Nolan was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his part in the gang rape of a 23-year-old woman.
