The body of the woman, who was aged in her early 40s, was found at an apartment on Castlebar Street in Westport on Saturday, 31 July 2021.

A post-mortem on the body of the woman has been completed but its results are not being released for operational reasons.

In a statement on Friday, Gardaí said that two men, aged in their 50s and 30s, had been arrested as part of the investigation into the death and were being detained at Castlebar Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

However, the pair have since been released without charge.

A Garda spokesperson has said a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
