Gardaí have issued an appeal to discover the identity of three people whose bodies have been found off the coast of Co Clare in recent years.

Officers in Kilrush appealed to the public for their help in identifying the remains.

The body of a woman was recovered near Doolin by a member of the Burren sub-aqua unit during a training exercise on August 14th, 2016.

Gardaí ruled out foul play after a postmortem at University Hospital Limerick, and a DNA sample was taken.

Partial clothing on the body included denim jeans with the label Esmara, and a purple item with a size tag 40/42. A black belt with a woven pattern was also recovered.

The woman has never been identified and was buried in January 2018 at Drumcliffe Cemetery in Ennis.

His remains were buried in July 2010 at Drumcliff Cemetery, Ennis.
