Man charged with the murder of his three siblings in Tallaght

A man replied “no comment” when he was charged with the murder of his three siblings in Dublin over the weekend, a court has heard.

Chelsea and Christy Cawley, 8, and her older sister Lisa Cash, 18, died just after midnight on Sunday following a violent incident at their home in Tallaght.

Gardaí arrested a man at the Rossfield Avenue property and he was subsequently taken into custody.

The man has been questioned for the past two days and tonight Andy Cash, 24, from Rossfield Avenue, Tallaght, appeared before a special session of Dublin District Court.

He is charged with murdering his brother and two sisters at their home on September 4th.

Gda Robert Whitty of Tallaght Garda Station gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution.

The court heard Mr Cash responded “no comment” to each charge when it was presented to him.

His defense attorney also called for a psychological assessment and solitary confinement for his client.

Judge Patricia McNamara said it was a matter for the prison warden, but added it was being noted.

An application for free legal aid was also granted after the court found there were no Garda objections.

After his appearance, Judge McNamara remanded the accused as an application for bail for murder can only be granted by the High Court.

The short hearing saw a sizeable civilian and uniformed presence in court.

Mr Cash will appear at Cloverhill Circuit Court via video link next Friday 9 September at 10am.

Following Sunday’s incident, the siblings’ mother, who was in her 40s and was not at the property at the time, was also hospitalized. She has since been released and is supported by family members.

In an earlier statement, Gardai said they had set up an incident room, adding that “all circumstances surrounding this incident are being investigated under the direction of a senior investigating officer.”

The crime scene at Rossfield Estate remains sealed off and forensic investigations are still being conducted by the Garda Technical Bureau.

A spokesperson added that the incident “was responded to by uniformed, unarmed Garda first responders from Tallaght County, assisted by uniformed members and armed detectives from the broader DMR South Division and members of the Specialist Armed Support Unit.

“An Garda Síochána has established and will continue to establish welfare support for all members who participated in this incident.”

Family, friends and loved ones of the three who died left a large amount of floral tributes and posters at the scene. Man charged with the murder of his three siblings in Tallaght
