The tight-knit community of Irishtown was stunned and saddened this week by the discovery of the bodies of a well known local couple Kitty Fitzgerald and her husband Tom at their home in Knockadoon, about 1km from Irishtown village close to the Galway border. Their bodies were found on Tuesday afternoon shortly after 3pm, with Kitty's body found inside the house and Tom's body outside the home.
