The body of a man in his 60s that’s been named locally as Thomas “Toddy” Dooley this morning remains where it was discovered yesterday (Sunday) afternoon, at his home in Sister Senan Court in Edenderry.
Mr Dooley’s body was discovered just before 3pm yesterday. The scene was immediately preserved for a technical examination, and according to a garda spokesperson the body remains at the scene this morning.
Speaking to the Offaly Independent chairperson of Edenderry Town Council Finian O’Neill said Mr Dooley was a “very quiet individual” who “always kept to himself”.
Originally from Francis Street in Edenderry, Cllr O’Neill said Mr Dooley moved to Sister Senan Court a few years ago.
“It certainly has woken up the community,” he said, adding that those in neighbouring homes are scared.
“It has frightened the community in that area to think that that could happen,” he said.
