Gardaí are continuing to investigate the discovery of suspected skeletal remains found along a disused railway line in East Cork earlier this week.
Additional skeleton remains were located at the scene today.
This followed an initial discovery of bones by workmen who were carrying out an excavation on a section of the route of the proposed Midleton to Youghal greenway in the Roxborough area near Midleton on Tuesday evening.
Gardaí sealed off the area and requested the State Pathologist to attend the scene.
The area remains sealed off and technical examinations are continuing, following examinations of the skeletal remains by Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margot Bolster.
Although technical examination of the area is progressing, it has not concluded, with gardaí saying current weather conditions are an additional challenge at this time.
The outcome of the examinations will determine the course of the investigation.
