State Pathologist arrives at Roscommon house
on 14/09/2012 12:41:02
morning in Roscommon Town.
GardaÍ have established the identities of two of the men, while they are looking for information regarding the third man. There is slight evidence of fire damage in the house.
The gardaí will have to await the results of post mortem examinations before determining how the three men died.
The men were found in different locations in the front room but were not lying on the floor.
Even though the house was vacant it had become a transient place where some local men had stayed from time to time.
The post mortems will take place in Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe.
The Mayor of Roscommon, Tom Crosby arrived at the scene shortly before noon and offered his
sympathies to the families and friends of the three men.
The house at St Ciaran's Park is located just off the Square in the centre of Roscommon Town.
Locals have expressed shock at the events which have unfolded when Gardai arrived to the
house shortly after 7.30a.m.
Local councillor Dominic Connolly said the town had been left devastated by the deaths.
"It is all everyone in the town is talking about this morning," said Mr Connolly.
"The details are still sketchy and we don't know who the men were, but Roscommon is a very close-knit town so it won't be long before we find out."
Mr Connolly said he was "absolutely shocked" when he heard the news.
