A man has appeared in court charged with murdering three of his siblings in their home in the Republic of Ireland.

Andy Cash, 24, of Rossfield Avenue in Tallaght in south-west Dublin, was charged on Monday night.

Eight-year-old twins Chelsea and Christy Cawley and 18-year-old Lisa Cash died after they were attacked in the early hours on Sunday.

The defendant appeared at a special sitting of Dublin District Court at about 21:00 local time on Monday.

Garda (Irish police) Robert Whitty told the court that the accused replied “no comment” when he was charged with the murders.

A defence solicitor requested a psychological assessment for his client and solitary confinement for him in custody.

The judge said that was a matter for the prison governor.

The defendant was remanded in custody and is due to appear before Cloverhill District Court in County Dublin by videolink on Friday.
