Bodies of an adult and two children discovered at house in Dublin

Gardaí are attending the scene.

The bodies of an adult and two children have been recovered at a house in Dublin.

Gardaí from Dundrum Garda Station responded to a call at Llywellen Court in Ballinteer shortly before midday on Wednesday (28 October).

On arrival at the scene, Gardaí discovered the bodies of a 37-year-old female and two children, an 11-year old girl and a six-year-old boy.

Garda have commenced an investigation into the circumstances of the unexplained deaths of all three persons.

The house has been designated a crime scene, the services of the Garda Technical Bureau have been requested and the scene will undergo a technical examination.

The State pathologist has also been informed and will attend the scene.

Gardaí said they are aware of comments circulating on some social media platforms and that the comments are uninformed and unhelpful to the criminal investigation.

Gardaí have appealed to members of the public NOT to circulate this social media speculation.
