THE DEPUTY STATE pathologist Dr Michael Curtis has visited each of the two Co Carlow scenes where bodies were discovered this morning.

The bodies of two men, aged 71 and 51, were discovered on neighbouring farms in Ballycormack, near Bagnalstown.

The first body was discovered by firemen at around 4am, and the second was discovered in a building on a neighbouring farm at around 9am.

Gardaí said this evening that the remains have been removed from both scenes to Naas General Hospital. Post-mortem examinations are due to be carried out at the hospital tomorrow.

The two scenes are still being preserved for a technical examination as gardaí continue to investigate the circumstances of the deaths.
