Gardai are continuing to question a man in his forties in connection with the death of a woman in Co. Mayo.

The woman has been named locally as Valerie Kilroy, a 41-year-old mother-of-three.

Her body was found at a house in the Kilbree area of Westport yesterday morning and the scene remain sealed off this afternoon.

A post-mortem examination is being carried out today to establish the circumstances around the woman's death.

The arrested man remains in custody at Castlebar Garda Station.

Gardai say they are not looking for anyone else in relation to the death.

Local independent councillor Christy Hyland says there is a huge sense of shock and sadness in the area.
