It is believed that remains discovered in Galway yesterday are that of missing Margaret ‘Mags’ Berry, who was last seen on Wednesday the 3rd of February.

Yesterday afternoon at 3.30pm the body of a woman was found in Merlin Woods during a search for Mags.

Gardai sealed off the scene for forensic analysis but say they do not believe the death to be suspicious.

A massive Facebook appeal was launched by friends of the 35-year-old woman, which garnered more than 2,000 followers.

While the remains have yet to be formally identified, friends of Ms Berry have taken to facebook to pay their respects to the young woman.

Describing her as a “beautiful free spirit”, one friend added; “I wish I had a chance to see her, she was such a lovely girl always so friendly I would always feel so relaxed and at ease around her.”
