A WOMAN has been left “heartbroken” by the discovery of her mother’s body in a river.
Mary Ryan (54) had been missing from her home in Waterford since December 15. Her body was taken from the River Burren in Carlow last week. A bag containing her belongings had been recovered nearby and DNA testing was used to identify the body.
we were still hoping in the back our heads it wasn’t her
“Although they were 99.9% sure it was my mother’s body, we were still hoping in the back our heads it wasn’t her. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case,” said her daughter Megan (20).
“We are totally heartbroken and in disbelief but we just want to thank everyone for their sympathy and consideration.”

Megan and her grandmother Peggy had appeared on RTE’s Crimecall programme seeking the public’s help.
“Both myself and my grandmother are happy we finally have some closure to this living nightmare and we are so grateful for everyone’s help,” said Megan.
