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."
