Gardaí have launched an investigation after two men carried a dead body into an Irish post office in an apparent attempt to claim his pension.
The deceased pensioner was described in reports as being “propped up” by the men as they walked into the building in County Carlow on Friday morning.
The outlandish series of events began when one of the men entered the post office at about 11.30am on Friday, asking to collect a pension payment for an older man, the Irish Times reported. He was refused, with staff informing him that the pensioner would have to be present in order for the money to be handed over.
