A man has been charged by Gardaí investigating the discovery of a man’s body in a Carlow Post Office.
It is believed the body was brought to the post office in an attempt to claim the dead man's pension.
Witnesses said two men attempted to claim the 66-year-old’s pension at the post office on Staplestown Road in Carlow Town last Friday.
The men were told the pensioner had to be present at the counter himself.
Later that afternoon, two men brought Mr Doyle’s body to the post office.
Witnesses said they were propping him up and he was wearing a woolly jumper over his face and a hat on his head.
Onlookers claimed his feet were “dragging” along the ground on the journey from his house a short walk from the shop.
A member of staff became suspicious and the two fled the scene.
Gardaí and emergency services were notified and Mr Doyle was declared dead when they arrived.
Last night, two men in their 30s were arrested in connection with the incident.
One of the men has now been charged and is due to appear before Carlow District Court this morning.
The second man has been released with a file to be prepared for the DPP.
