Gardai have recovered a body from an apartment in Portlaoise.
The sad discovery was made in Laois’s main town.
A Garda spokesperson confirmed to LaoisToday that they believed the man had passed away from natural causes.
They said: “There is nothing to indicate that the circumstances around the man’s death are suspicious.
“It appears he died from natural causes.”
LaoisToday understands that the man passed away some time ago and that his body lay there undiscovered ever since.
It is believed that the man is aged in his 60s and although not originally from Portlaoise, he comes from a neighbouring county.
