75-year-old Miriam Burns was named locally.
Gardai in Co. Kerry have launched an investigation into the discovery of the body of a woman in her 70s at her home outside Killarney.
They're said to be treating the death of the pensioner as 'unexplained' and are waiting for post-mortem results to determine the course of their investigation.
She's been named locally as Miriam Burns - a 75-year-old Grandmother and mother of four.
The scene remains sealed off for a full technical and forensic examination.

Ralph Riegel is the Southern Correspondent for the Irish Independent.
He says the Ard-Shana-Vooley housing estate, where the woman's body was found, is very quiet.
"It's a very mature, established housing estate. You have quite a lot of elderly people, older families there."
"It's a very very quiet residential area. Located only walking distance from the outlet centre in Killarney."
