GARDAÍ IN KERRY have charged two men in connection with the discovery of a man’s body in Listowel on Sunday.

The 19-year-old and 28-year-old will appear before a sitting of Newcastle West District Court tomorrow morning.

The body was found at a bog in Ballylongford yesterday morning as Gardaí carried out a planned search. It is understood the operation was part of an investigation into the whereabouts of a Brazilian man who has been missing from Gort in Galway for a number of weeks.

Dr Margaret Bolster from the State Pathologist’s Office carried out a postmortem examination on the remains earlier today. A number of scenes were also examined by the Garda Technical Bureau.
