the body of an 83-year-old woman who lived in self-imposed exile at her home in the Faythe lay undiscovered for more than two months.

Brigid Crosbie's remains were found by gardai who broke into her home on Friday night, following the latest in a series of reports going back several years that she had not been seen.

A member of the Palmarian Catholic Church, a sect which believes that the Holy See is in Spain not Rome, Brigid had lived in the Faythe for more than 40 years, and would be often be seen heading to catch a train to Dublin where she distributed religious literature.

Wexford funeral home director Paddy Mulligan, a neighbour of Brigid's, said her isolation was self-imposed and 'it wasn't for the lack of both her neighbours and family trying to keep an eye on her'.
