THE garda sub-aqua unit was called to Portlaoise during the search for a man, which, sadly, concluded with the discovery of his body last Wednesday evening.
The body of 47-year-old Patrick Bruton was discovered in Kilminchy lake five days after he went missing from his home.
The deceased is believed to have lived alone in LakesideGardens. Mr Bruton was described by one local as a man “who kept to himself.” His death is not being treated as suspicious.
Funeral Mass took place in Naas yesterday (Monday) with burial in St Corban’s Cemetery.
