A man in his 40s has died from a gunshot wound following an incident which required a Garda presence yesterday afternoon.
Gardaí surrounded the farm at Wolfhill, Co. Laois at 3pm yesterday; they are now investigating all the circumstances surrounding the death of the man.
No other person is being sought in relation to the incident, a Garda spokesperson has confirmed.
The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) and the office of the State Pathologist have been notified of the investigation.
Gardaí requested a media blackout on all platforms at the time of the incident; this has since been lifted.
