Three children found dead in house near Dublin after 'unexplained' incident

Gardaí said that the deaths are "unexplained".

The discovery was made at a house in Newcastle, with emergency services now at the scene.

A forensic examination of the property is underway while Gardai are also awaiting the results of a post-mortem which is expected to take place today.

Police sources said they had found no evidence anyone else was in the house when the children died.

The first picture of the three children who were found dead in their family home in Dublin has been released.

A family liaison officer has been appointed and is in contact with the father and the extended family.

There, they discovered the bodies of the three children.

The children were found in a house in a small housing development in the village.

Three children who were found dead in Newcastle last night have been named as 9 year old Conor, 7 year old Darragh and 3 year old Carla.

Several women could be seen in tears as they attended the scene, which has been described as "a very quiet street" and popular with young families. She is receiving medical treatment in Tallaght University Hospital.

Speaking to the Associated Press, local councillor Emer Higgins described the incident as an "unimaginable tragedy".

The house remains sealed off as a crime scene.

"It's so tragic. It's unbelievable that three young people's lives could be cut short like that, in what seems to be a particularly tragic case".
