A Navan family is in mourning following the violent death of Jacqueline McDonagh in Dundalk.
The 34 year-old Navan native was found dead on the floor of a downstairs room in the family home at College Manor in Dundalk.
A daughter of Chrsty and Winnie McDonagh, her husband, Michael Quinn McDonagh, told gardai that two men had burst into the house in the early hours of the night and attacked his wife. He was in the house with their three children when the body was found.
Mr Quinn McDonagh was the subject of a 2011 Ian Palmer-directed documentary, 'Knuckle', which followed violent feuding between the McDonagh, Nevin and Joyce families, and was filmed between 1997 and 2007.
