Two men have been charged with assault causing serious harm in relation to the death of a 41-year-old Latvian man in Tullow, Co Carlow.

Gints Intenbergs was found dead on the floor of a kitchen in a house on the Graigowen estate on Tuesday.

Liam Power, 51, from Shaw Park, Co Carlow and Dzintars Zackalausks, 31, from Latvia appeared before Judge Eamon O'Brien at Carlow District Court this morning.

There were no applications for bail and both have been remanded in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court next week.
