Police in New York say they are investigating the death of an Irish woman in Brooklyn.

They say they responded to an emergency call last Tuesday 1 March.

Police say they found the 51-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive with injuries indicative of falling from an elevated position.

The New York Police Department say the Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

However, a spokesperson said it does not appear to be suspicious at this time.

Denise McKenna, originally from Castleblayney in Co Monaghan, had been living in New York for a number of years.

Her funeral will take place in Castleblayney on Wednesday morning.
