BREAKING: Bodies of man and child discovered in Dublin stream


An investigation is underway into the deaths of a man and a young boy after the discovery of two bodies in a Dublin stream.

A passer-by notified police at around 3pm today after seeing evidence of the bodies in the stream, which is part of the Royal Canal at Ashington in Dublin 7.

The area has been sealed-off and the state pathologist has been alerted.

Train service on Irish Rail's Maynooth line stopped following the discovery but has since resumed.

According to the Irish Independent, it's believed the bodies may have been there "since last night."
