Post mortem examinations will take place today on the bodies of two missing Co Carlow brothers - found in Co Mayo.
The remains of Ruairi and Eoghan Chada were discovered in a dark green Ford Focus that their father Sanjeev was driving.
Gardai are trying to establish if the young boys died prior to the car colliding with a wall on the Old Coast Road at Rosbeg near Westport.
The bodies of 5 year old Ruairi and 10 year old Eoghan Chada were taken to Mayo General Hospital in Castlebar late last night - following a preliminary examination of their remains in the car - in which they were located.
A team from the Garda Technical Bureau will carry out forensic tests on the car this morning - while the deputy State Pathologist Dr Kalid Jabbar will perform post mortems on the boys bodies.
Superintendent David Taylor from the Garda Press Office is appealing to anyone who may have seen the car after it left Bagnealstown in Co Carlow on Sunday evening to contact them.
Gardai are also today expected to interview the boys father - 43 year old Sanjeev Chada - who is being treated in hospital for minor injuries - sustained in the car crash.
