Gardaí have released a man they had been questioning about the death of a woman in Co Kilkenny.

The woman died in hospital after being found at the bottom of stairs in a house in Freshford on Sunday afternoon.

Gardaí later detained a man in his 30s for questioning.

He has now been released without charge, and a file is to be sent to the DPP.

Earlier this week, Gardaí asked anyone with information about the investigation to contact them at Kilkenny Garda Station on 056-777-5000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.

"Gardai are particularly appealing to anybody who visited the local Costcutter shop, or who may have been in the Bridge Street area of Freshford Village, between the hours of 8am and 1pm on Sunday the 14th May and who may have heard or noticed anything out of the ordinary to contact them," detectives said in a statement.
