A murder investigation is underway after the body of a Mayo man was discovered in a river in Georgia.
The body of 28-year old Tom Kennedy from Lahardane was found in a river in Gori last Saturday.
Efforts are now underway to repatriate his body to Ireland, and a GoFundMe page has been set up by his cousin to raise funds to bring him home.
Police in Georgia believe Mr Kennedy was socialising with several Georgian nationals before a row took place.
They're accused of beating him and throwing him in the river while he was unconscious.
A number of people have been detained in relation to his death.
Four men have appeared in court charged with murder, while one other has been accused of failing to disclose the crime to police.
Tom's cousin Olivia Barrett said they're devastated at news of his death.
She has set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to bring Tom home as soon as possible.
