Tipperary deaths

The elderly English couple found dead in a house in Co Tipperary lived like "ghosts" who kept themselves to themselves and rarely ventured out of the house, according to locals.

Gardaí confirmed their bodies had been discovered on Monday afternoon in the townland of Cloneen, near the Tipperary-Kilkenny border.

They are understood to have bought the house from a local man about 10 years ago. A local resident said the couple had planned to sell the house, which lead locals to believe the pair have moved back to Britain.

Delta, United and Air Canada were among those which signed the letter, claiming long queues at the airport resulted in delays and complaints to the airlines from passengers.
