On Sunday morning, the body of a lady who had been sleeping on the streets of Dublin was discovered, reports The Mirror.

The woman, who was found dead on Sunday morning, was thought to be the second rough sleeper fatality in the nation. She was in her early 50s.

The woman, identified as Ann Delaney, was a mother and nurse from Carlow who was discovered in a sleeping bag near a Tesco store on Aungier Street in Dublin.

It is believed that she has been homeless for a minimum of seven years, having previously resided on Thomas Street before relocating to Aungier Street. At the location where her corpse was found, a lot of flowers and candles have been placed.

Organiser of the Liberty Soup Run for the past five years, Chris O’Reilly, described Ann as a “lovely lady, a real character,” and noted that many people would have known her.

“She passed away sadly on [Sunday] morning. She was alive early on Sunday but then she suddenly became unresponsive. We don’t know her cause of death, whether the dropping temperatures might have been a factor or not,” reports The Mirror.

“Paramedics were called but unfortunately Ann passed away. We are heartbroken and lost for words. Another homeless person died on our streets and it’s just so wrong. Ann was a lovely lady and was well liked. She was just going through a hard time. She had a family and a life and she just fell on hard times. We want to send our love to all of her family. She will be missed but she is at peace now. We still can’t believe that this lady has passed away,” reports The Mirror.
