GARDAI are not treating the discovery of a body in an apartment building in County Limerick as suspicious.
The body of the male, understood to be in his late thirties, was found in a communal stairwell at 8.20am in Turagh Crescent, Cappamore.
He was pronounced dead at the scene after he was attended to by paramedics and gardai.
Gardai say it is a "tragic accident" in which the deceased may have fallen.
The body has been removed to University Hospital Limerick where a post mortem examination will take place.
Local county councillor, Noel Gleeson said the sad news has shocked the parish.
"He is from a very well-known and highly respected family. I met him very recently and he was a very nice man to meet,” said the local representative.
"I offer my sympathies to the family. It is a big shock to the community, he was a young man," said Cllr Gleeson.
