Mother and two sons found dead today named

The mother and two sons whose dead bodies were found today in a house in Rathfarnham have been named.

The three were named locally as Mary Keegan, aged around 41 and her two sons Glen, 10, and Andrew, aged around seven.

Neighbours said it was believed her husband Brian, whose van was parked just outside the white garda tape surrounding the house at Killakee Walk in Dublin’s Firhouse had just returned from the US today.

As neighbours and friends gathered in the quiet cul-de-sac, superintendent Declan Coburn from Tallaght Garda Station said: “About 11.30 this morning the Gardaí were called to the house here at Killakee Walk which is just behind me. On arrival there and from preliminary examinations they discovered the body of a woman and two young boys.

“I would ask anybody who may have been in this area, who may have any information at all, an investigation has commenced and they may call us at Tallaght garda station.”
