Gardai have sealed off an area , near Dunleer town centre, as they await for the State Pathologist to arrive.The circumstances surrounding the man's death are not yet known, but it is believed it may be suspicious.A Garda spokesman said: "Gardaí in Dunleer are investigating all the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a body of a man (early 20s) on land off the Ardee Road, Dunleer, Co. Louth this morning. "Gardaí and emergency services attended the scene this morning at approximately 8.45am."The man was pronounced dead a short time later.
The rail industry believed “until the last moment” that it could successfully introduce the new timetables that have led to major disruption, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said.
He accepted people would find that “hard to understand”, amid mass cancellations and delays on Northern and Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR).
In a statement in the Commons, Mr Grayling revealed that GTR “assured me personally that they were ready” just three weeks before services were rescheduled on May 20.

Operator axes 165 trains to 'stabilise' services
A total of 165 trains are to be removed from schedules every day until the end of July amid "disruption and inconvenience", operator Northern has announced. Services in areas including Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool and the Lake District will be affected by the reductions, which the operator says will improve reliability.The introduction of new timetables in May has resulted in travel chaos on the lines, with 14% of Northern services cancelled and 25% at least five minutes late on Tuesday this week.Northern managing director David Brown apologised for the "disruption" and "inconvenience" to passengers.
“Clearly this was wrong and it is totally unacceptable,” he said.
“The rail industry has collectively failed to deliver for the passengers it serves.
“It’s right that the industry has apologised for the situation that we are currently in and that we learn the lessons for the future.”
