Gardai have launched an investigation following the discovery of a young man’s body in Co Donegal.
The body of the man, who was in his 30s, was found at a house in Ballybofey on Saturday morning.
The man has been named locally as James Devlin who was originally from Glasgow but has lived in the area for a number of years.
It is understood that Mr Devlin, who was aged 35, had been at a house party at the house earlier in the evening.
The house at Cappry, Ballybofey has been sealed off and a full Garda investigation has been launched.
The man’s body was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital for a post-mortem which is expected to take place tomorrow (Mon).
A Garda spokesman confirmed that a body was found at Cappry, Ballybofey at 9am on Saturday morning and removed to Letterkenny Hospital.
A spokesman for the Garda Press Office said the results of that post-mortem will determine the direction their investigation will take.
The man’s family, who are based in Scotland, have been made aware of his death.
A fundraising campaign has been launched to bring his remains back to Scotland once the Garda investigation has been completed.
Local county councillor Patrick McGowan said the community was shocked by the discovery of the man’s body.
“The news of this death is spreading around the town and the entire community of Ballybofey is saddened and shocked by this death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family,” he said.
