Woman arrested on suspicion of murdering the three McGinley children
A woman in her 40s has been arrested on suspicion of murder, in relation to the discovery of the bodies of three children at a property in Parson’s Court, Newcastle, Co Dublin last Friday.
She is currently detained at Clondalkin Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
Earlier today, the children’s father Andrew McGinley released a heartbreaking statement sharing his grief at losing Conor (9), Darragh (7) and Carla (3).
In the statement, issued through Gardaí, he said: “There are no words. There is only devastation, grief and anguish. Every breath is a struggle.
“Conor, Darragh and Carla are adored. They all had beautiful, bright futures ahead of them with family, friends and a community who love them.
“To all parents, cuddle your children whenever you get a chance, tell them how much you love them as often as you can, spend every spare minute with them reading, playing and enjoying their wonderfulness.
“The future has now become our enemy but we will battle it every day to keep the memory of Conor, Darragh and Carla alive.”
