A murder investigation has been launched into the death of 60-year-old Christopher Mooney in Monaghan.
Post-mortem examinations have concluded on the bodies of two men , discovered in separate locations close to Castleblayney in Co Monaghan yesterday.
60-year-old Christopher Mooney was stabbed to death at a house in Broomfield, yesterday morning.
A short time later 37-year-old Kieran Hamill died after he was struck by a car nearby.
Gardai are working to establish if the road crash victim had been in the house earlier, where the other man's body was discovered.
They are also appealing for anyone with information to come forward, particularly road users with dash cam footage who were traveling on the N53 Castleblayney to Dundalk Road between 6:30am and 8:30am yesterday.
