Sheila Grollman, who was aged 72, is thought to have gone for a dip on Thursday evening and likely suffered a heart attack.

The emergency services were called to the property to find her floating in the water. INEM paramedics declared the woman dead at the scene.

There were no suspicious circumstances but as there were no witnesses, her body has been sent for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The long-term resident lived alone at the property with her two dogs which temporarily are being cared for by neighbours but now need new homes.
