Locals struggling to make sense of what happened in Lixnaw
A Kerry-based journalist says locals are still “baffled” by an apparent double murder-suicide that happened in the north of the county.
Gardaí have not yet established a motive for the incident, though a criminal investigation has been launched.
56-year-old Eileen O’Sullivan and her 24-year-old son Jamie, were found in separate rooms in their home in Lixnaw by a neighbour on Tuesday night.
Eileen’s 63-year-old partner Mossie was found at the back of the home.
Local journalist Anne Lucey says the community are struggling to make sense of what happened.
“It’s the third such [incident] in the region, Cork and Kerry are very close and you’ve had two in Cork and this is the now the third as such
“This is completely baffling locals. I spoke to a woman who knew them well yesterday on the condition of anonymity, and there were no signals, they seemed happy.”
