“You may never know how much this will help me.”

Andrew McGinley has issued an appeal to the public as he struggles with self-isolation.

The father’s three children, Conor, Darragh, and Carla, were found dead at the family’s home in west Dublin in January. Their mother has since been charged with their murder.

Mr McGinley, who has set up the YouTube channel Conor’s Clips in memory of his children, told his followers on Twitter that he was “looking for a favour”.

“I’m struggling with isolation like you all but really missing the company. I was also enjoying most of the letters that I received so I have a request,” he said.

“Can you write to me? If you feel like using one of your An Post postcards then great. Letters welcome.”

In the post, he also included a handwritten note, which said:

“If you want something to do or to give your kids something to do, then I’d be delighted to get cards or letters about anything.

“Maybe just let me know if you or your kids are enjoying Conor’s Clips. You may never know how much this will help me.”

Anybody who wants to write to him should address the letters to Andrew McGinley, Newcastle, County Dublin. D22 VH77.
