A man has been found dead on a back road after a hit-and-run incident.

Gardai believe the 20-year-old was struck some time after being dropped off by a taxi in the Lemgare, Clontibret area of Co Monaghan at around 3am.

He was discovered by a passer-by along a minor road. Gardai sealed off the area to allow forensic investigators carry out an examination.

The state pathologist's office has been notified.

Officers are appealing for anyone with information or who saw anything to come forward.
