GARDAÍ HAVE LAUNCHED an investigation after a woman’s body was discovered in a burning car in north Cork. 

The body of the woman, who was in her 70s, was found in the Doneraile area of north Cork this afternoon. 

A man, who is understood to be in his 50s, was rescued from a river shortly after gardaí conducted a search of the area. He is in a serious condition. 

The scene is currently preserved and a technical examination is to be carried out by the Garda Technical Bureau. The Office of the State Pathologist has been informed and a post mortem is to be carried out, the results of which will determine the course of the investigation, gardaí said.
