A pensioner has died in a house fire on a farm.
The 77-year-old was found dead in the home in the Kilbehenny area of Co Cork, where it is understood he lived alone.
The man was found dead shortly before midnight.
The body was removed and taken to the Mid-Western Regional Hospital in Limerick where a post-mortem was being carried out on Wednesday.
A Garda spokesman said that a technical examination would be carried out at the house to establish the cause of the blaze.
