    This man was not well. He had medical issues and ASD. serious incidents but no mention of why he wasn’t able to get help along with his family . This is what happens when services are no available here in Ireland for mental health and disability services . Double edge sword such an awful act and distress for every one including his family . Glad every one was ok but please be mindful of Mental health so many families in Ireland live with tragic situations so much more can be done and should be done
