An investigation has been launched by gardaí in Cork after a man’s body was found in unexplained circumstances in the county.
Gardaí and emergency services were alerted shortly after 7pm, after the body of a man in his 50s was found at the foot of a stairwell in an apartment in Mallow yesterday, Thursday.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and has since been removed to Cork University Hospital.
