Gardaí do not believe at this stage that three young children whose bodies were found in Co Dublin died of natural causes. Investigators are awaiting the outcome of post-mortem examinations to determine the cause of what gardaí described as "sudden" and "unexplained" deaths. The bodies were found in a house at Parson's Court in Newcastle village, northwest of Rathcoole, last night. A woman in her 40s, who is believed to be the children's mother, has been admitted to Tallaght hospital. The house remains sealed off as a crime scene. Gardaí were called to the house after 7pm last night and first found a woman on the street in a disorientated state. They then went into the house and found the bodies of three young children, two boys and a girl believed to be aged four, eight and ten years old. A note was also found at the scene. Gardaí said they are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident. Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact the incident room at Clondalkin Garda Station on 01-6667600.

Such a heart breaking tragedy Murdered by the person they trusted the most and not to for get the poor Father 😓😓Heartbreaking. My thoughts are with all their family, friends and their whole community 3 children dead, Gardaí say they do not believe it was natural causes. So it was murder. Is anyone going to come out and say this or are we going to pretend it is not murder because the perpetrator might be a woman and might be related to the children?

So sad Newcastle community in awful shock , the poor father and relatives of the 3 kids. 😢 A tragic outcome . So very sad. Our prayers are with all those suffering today- we trust God will be present in a special way Hard to comprehend. Poor wee ones 💔 That’s the same message that Alan Hawe left when killed his family.

Beyond words how sad this is 😢 What is this world coming to.....R.I.P ❤️
