The Taoiseach has led Dáil tributes to those who died in the fire in Carrickmines and Garda Tony Golden.
The short tributes were made ahead of the budget this afternoon.
10 people died in the fire at a halting site in South County Dublin on Saturday, while Garda Golden was murdered in County Louth on Sunday night.
Enda Kenny says this is a terrible time for all the families involved. He said: “For both the Golden family and the extended Connors and Lynch families it will be difficult, very difficult, it might now seem impossible, for those who remain behind to find their coordinates of sense and survival in the dark weeks and months and time ahead as we approach Christmas and beyond,” Mr Kenny said.
“The Tricolour, the symbol of our country will fly at half-mast on all public buildings on the occasion of the funerals.”
