There are emotional scenes at the home of the couple found dead in Carndonagh early this morning.
Relatives were led through Garda cordons at the home on the Carn side of the Mountain Road.
The large bungalow, which is surrounded by gardens, has been sealed off by Gardai following the discovery this morning.
It is understood a family member found the couple and neighbours have expressed their shock.
There is also a large media presence at the scene.
Fianna Fail councillor Rena Donaghey said the community had been left stunned by the deaths.
She said: “It is truly shocking. Cardonagh is a small town and the close-knit community has been left in shock by the news.
“At this stage we are just awaiting further details to find out exactly what happened.”
