Inquests of suspected murder suicide in Kanturk to open next month

The inquests of a father and his two sons who died in a suspected murder suicide in Kanturk will be opened next month.

Gardai believe Mark O’Sullivan was shot in his bedroom by his father Tadgh and younger brother Diarmuid in their home in Kanturk on October 26 last year.

The indications are that Tadgh and Diarmuid shot themselves a short time later in a nearby field.

The inquests follow the death of the only other member of the family, Ann, who died earlier this year who was also in the house at the time of the shooting.

Gardai found correspondence from one of the men which helped to establish the sequence of events at the farm.

The incident is understood to be linked to an inheritance dispute.

The inquests will be opened next month in Mallow on July 7th.
