Man charged after carrying dead man into post office to claim his pension

A man has been charged by Irish police after the body of a pensioner was brought to a post office in an alleged attempt to collect his pension.

It follows the arrest of two men in their 30s yesterday as part of the ongoing investigation into the incident that took place last week. The second man has been released from custody.

The man who was charged in connection with the incident is scheduled to appear before a special sitting at Kilkenny District Court today.

Peadar Doyle, 66, was brought to the post office on the Staplestown Road in Co Carlow last Friday by two men. The two men left after staff became suspicious and concerned for Mr Doyle’s welfare.

It was later discovered that the man had died, and his body was removed from the post office.
