Investigation underway after woman found dead at hotel

An investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead at a hotel in Oughterard.

The woman, 64, was discovered in a bedroom at the Connemara Lake Hotel at 11.30am yesterday morning (Monday).

A statement on the hotel’s website reads: “The Connemara Lake Hotel confirms that a guest tragically passed away while staying in the Hotel over the weekend. The Hotel is closed until further notice while an investigation takes place by the Garda Síochána.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased, their family and friends.”

A post-mortem is to be carried out later today at University Hospital Galway.

The scene has been preserved while a forensic examination is carried out.
