An inquest will be carried out next month into the death of Nóra Quoirin in Malaysia.

Her body was found about 2km from the Dusun rainforest resort in August 2019 after she disappeared from the house she was staying in with her family.

Malaysian authorities had initially refused the inquest as police concluded she died of natural causes.

However, officials ruled today that an inquest will take place from 24 August to 4 September.

Sixty-four witnesses will be called.

The inquest will be broadcast over Zoom due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The family of Nóra Quoirin will not be able to travel for the inquest.

Her parents told RTÉ News they are pleased with the news of an inquest after months of calling for one.
