Share

The bodies of nine year old Conor, seven year old Darragh and three year old Carla McGinley were discovered in the Parson's Court, Newcastle house yesterday evening at approximately 7.45pm.

It has been reported that a woman, thought to be the children's mother, was found wandering the streets in a "disorientated state" by a taxi driver who contacted the authorities.

Gardaí say they're investigating the circumstances of the now "unexplained" deaths, and are not at this time looking for any other person in relation to the incident.

It is believed the family moved to Newcastle about a year ago.

Associated Press maintains its still not clear to gardai just how the children had died when they attended the scene. After he discovered a note there saying "Call 999, don't go upstairs", he alerted authorities.

They have been confirmed as brothers and sister Conor McGinley, aged 9, Darragh McGinley aged 7, and Carla McGinley, aged 3. She is receiving medical treatment in Tallaght University Hospital.

The house remains sealed off as a crime scene.

Councillor for Fine Gael Emer Higgins described the events as an "unimaginable tragedy".
