The workers at the local post office told the man that the man himself would have to be present inside the office in order to get the pension. 

The man, who was not named, returned later with 2 other men, which includes one man in his 60s that appeared to be propped up. 

A woman staff became suspicious of the men’s movements and decided to alert a post office staff member, which led the men to abandon the body in the shop when they refused to hand over cash.

The Gardai and emergency services were notified about the incident and the man was declared dead when an ambulance crew and several gardai attended the scene.

The deceased man, who is believed to be around 66 years old, is from Pollerton Road.
