'Every breath is a struggle' Father of three children found dead in Dublin home issues statement

"The future has now become our enemy."

The father of the three children found dead in a Dublin home has issued a statement.

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 last Friday at approximately 7.45pm.

Their cause of death remains unknown.

An Garda Síochána have since issued a statement on behalf of the children's father, Andrew McGinley.

He also supplied the above photograph to An Garda Síochana.

"There are no words," reads McGinley's statement. "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.

"Andrew.”

A female relative in her 40s, believed to be the children's mother, was also discovered at the scene last week.

She is currently receiving medical treatment in Tallaght University Hospital.
