Cork : Man's body found in slurry pit on a farm
An investigation is under way after a man's body was discovered in a slurry pit in the Republic of Ireland.
The body has been removed from the farm outside Cork city and a post-mortem examination will take place at Cork University Hospital on Friday.
A formal identification process is also expected to take place on Friday.
The discovery was made close to an area where a mobile phone belonging to a man, who has been missing since before Christmas, was found.
31-year-old Diarmuid Twomey went missing after a night out with his partner.
He was last seen near Fairhill in Cork city in the early hours of 20 December.
Extensive searches involving gardaí (Irish police), search dog teams and a coast guard helicopter have since taken place.
Mr Twomey's phone was found in a farmyard at Ballinahina, but no further trace of him was found since.
Thursday's discovery was made on a neighbouring farm.
