Today marks third anniversary of deaths of Conor, Darragh and Carla McGinley
The father of three children killed by their mother, says more people are dying because of our mental health policies.
Today is the third anniversary of the deaths of Conor, Darragh and Carla McGinley in Newcastle, Co. Dublin.
Their mother, Deirdre Morley, was found not guilty of their murders by reason of insanity.
Their father, Andrew McGinley, wants family members to be more involved in their loved one’s mental health care.
He’s hitting out at the delay in changing the policies.
“I’m very disappointed, because the longer that they go unchanged quite simply more people will die.
“Since the year 2000, there are nearly 60 children who have died at the hands of a parent whilst that parent was being treated for their mental health.
“60 children. That’s two classrooms full of children. Sometimes I think is it that there are not enough people dying? Would changes be made quicker if more people died?”
