The mother of four was shot dead in a house in Bailieboro last Thursday.
Her husband, Oliver Kierans, aged 56, has been charged with her murder and possession of a firearm.
At Tuesday's brief court hearing, Detective Sergeant Ann Marie Lardner said that when arrested, Oliver Kierans said "I will admit - I'm sorry."
At Tuesday's hearing, the judge recommended that a physical and psychiatric evaluation be carried out on the accused, and that he be placed on suicide watch.
It's expected the results of these assessments will be made known later.
