An inquest into the death of a Rooskey man at Christmas two years ago has returned an open verdict of drowning.
Kevin McTernan, of 21 Alton Apartments in Knocknacarra, Galway, lost his life in the River Shannon at Rooskey in 2020.
Mr McTernan is thought to have entered the water on the 23rd of December after travelling via bus from Galway to his family home in Rooskey, for the holidays.
A member of the public located a suitcase along the river belonging to the deceased on the 26th of December leading to Gardaí searching the bank.
Elements of clothing were subsequently discovered at the water's edge, with the Leitrim fire brigade then launching a search of the river.
His body was recovered from the Shannon later that day.
In his closing remarks, Sligo/Leitrim Coroner Fergal Kelly, along with Sergeant Frank Fallon of Carrick on Shannon Garda Station, extended their sincere condolences to the McTernan family
