Ireland Report / Story
A second set of human remains have been found near a railway that is being turned into a greenway in the Killeagh area of East Cork.

Just over a year and a half ago, human remains were found in the same area as the ground was disturbed and cleared for the new Youghal rail amenity.

There are reports that the remains found are that of an infant with Gardaí said to be following a definite line of inquiry.

The remains have been removed to Cork City Morgue in Cork University Hospital, where a forensic analysis will take place.

A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána have said that the assistance of a Forensic Anthropologist has been sought and that the results of a post-mortem examination will determine the course of the investigation.

The skeletal remains found in January 2021 were found on the route of the old railway line just on the outskirts of Midleton, East Cork. It was established that the remains were of a woman, aged 70 or older, small in stature, who had died approximately in the last 10 years.

The remains of a nightdress and a cross, such as one that might be placed in the hands of a dead person in a coffin, were also found.
