Garda probe after skeletal remains found in Wexford

A massive garda investigation has begun in after a badly decomposed body was found in a ditch just before midday .

The grim discovery in Co Wexford was made by a woman who was walking her dog this morning at Ballyandrew in the village of Ferns at around noon.

The area has been sealed off and the case is being investigated by Enniscorthy gardai.

The garda technical bureau are making their way to the scene and the office of the State Pathologist has been informed.

The gender of the remains has not yet been established.

Local Fianna Fáil councillor Pip Breen said the local community was shocked but hopeful the discovery would bring “closure” once the remains are identified.

“Everyone who is missing a relative will say to themselves ‘is this one of ours?’ and that’s the biggest thing here,” he said.

“We have to wait to see and everyone is only guessing for something at this stage but anytime someone dumps a body it’s not good and that person has no respect for anyone.

“There is nothing good about this and the only thing is it might bring closure for someone.”
