The woman was 44 years old and from Co Fermanagh.
Her body was found at the bottom of a 100-feet high cliff by a man out walking along the beach at 8am.
The scene had been sealed off earlier today as Garda technical officers arrived for an investigation.
One shocked local said today: “This is horrible news; God help the poor woman.
“Everyone in the community will be praying for her family today.
“It’s just awful news to hear.”
Another local man told us: “It is very sad for that poor woman’s family. We are all thinking of them.”
It’s understood detectives do not suspect foul play in the incident and the woman’s body has been identified and relatives in Fermanagh informed.
