Man's body found in campervan at Lahinch Beach, Co. Clare
A postmortem examination on the man's body is due to take place soon.
Gardaí have launched an investigation following the discovery of the body of a man at a popular beach in Co. Clare.
The man's body was found inside a campervan at Lahinch Beach carpark.
He was in his 50s.
Members of the Gardaí attended the scene after they were alerted yesterday afternoon. They were unable to access the van and called for support from the fire services.
Units from the Clare County Fire and Rescue Service from the nearby Ennistymon and the National Ambulance Service paramedics attended the scene.
Gardaí then sealed off the scene and privacy screens were put up.
The man's campervan was removed from the scene shortly after the discovery, and his body was taken to the mortuary at University Hospital Limerick. A postmortem examination is due to take place.
Gardaí also spoke to other campervan occupants in the area in order to determine the man's movements. It is not clear how long he was in the van before his body was found.
