Police have released the photograph of a mother-of-two who died while on holiday in Fermanagh as they appeal for information about her.

Lu Na McKinney, 35 and from Co Donegal was in a hired cruiser in Co Fermanagh with her husband and their two young children in April when she died.

She entered the water while on an Easter holiday. Emergency services found her body but attempts to revive her failed and she died in hospital.

Last month police said they had carried out a review into the circumstances surrounding the death at Devenish Island on Thursday April 13, 2017.

As a result her husband Stephen McKinney, 41, of Flaxfields, Convoy, Co Donegal, was charged on suspicion of murder sometime between April 11 and April 14 2017 near Devenish Island in Co Fermanagh.

He appeared in court on December 5 where a defence lawyer told the court that McKinney has "vehemently denied the allegation".

Detective Inspector David McGrory said: “Police are issuing a photograph of Mrs McKinney today in the hope that people will come forward with any information they have about her.

“I would like to hear from anyone who knew her or anyone who had contact with Mrs McKinney, who lived in Convoy, County Donegal, in the months preceding her death.

“Colleagues in An Garda Siochana are working jointly with PSNI to investigate Lu Na’s death and anyone with information can contact either the PSNI on 101 ext 43373, confidential Crimestoppers number on 0800 555 111 or AGS at Letterkenny on 00353 749167100 or the AGS Confidential line on 1800 666 111.”
