Oakfield Park suffered the effects of Storm Rachel with trees falling victim to the high winds.

A large beech tree was among those.

On inspection of the tree, staff noticed some large bones under where the roots were.

Given the location of the bones under an ancient tree the bones, it's believed they have been there for some time. 

Staff couldn't distinguish if the bones were human or animal. 

An Garda Síochána sealed off the area overnight and a forensic examination has taken place.

That examination is now complete, resulting in the bones being of animal origin.
