Gardaí are investigating the death of a man after his body was discovered at a house in Cork.
They were called to a house at Curraheen Drive in Bishopstown shortly after 4pm yesterday after the man in his 40s was discovered by family members.
He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
The man was removed to the mortuary at Cork University Hospital where a post mortem examination is expected to be carried out today.
The scene was preserved for examination by local crime scene officers and both the office of the State Pathologist and local Coroner have been notified.
Gardaí say the results of the post mortem will determine the course of their investigation.
