A woman who was found dead in her Roscommon home by her children has been named locally as Martina Senturk.

The 32-year-old grew up in the area and was raising her three children in her hometown with her husband who is from Turkey.

Murphy said:


"I didn’t know Martina personally, but she grew up in the area and everyone would know the family, they are well-liked and well-known.

"Martina had three small children and the connection would be all around the Kilglass area, in the community, and the school.

"It is a very tragic case, and the community is very upset obviously. She was a young woman with three small children, it makes it even harder.

"It is hard to comprehend and just a very unbelievably tragic case. My thoughts are with her family and friends".

Gardaí are appealing for any information relating to the incident.
