A tragic drowning accident on the River Shannon led to the deaths of a married couple who were on a holiday in the area.

The bodies of husband and wife, Frank Dunne and Alexandra Malkin Dunne were recovered from the water at Carrick-on-Shannon yesterday afternoon as reported by the Irish Independent.

The couple, who both lived in Germany, were in their 30's and had hired a cruiser boat earlier in the week.
