This morning.

A 28-year-old man has admitted murdering an 11-year-old boy in the south of the country over a year ago.

Neither can be named owing to Section 252 of the Children Act, 2001 which prohibits the identification of child victims including a deceased child.

Via RTÉ News:

The man was arraigned before the Central Criminal Court today via video-link from prison.

He pleaded guilty to murdering the boy, who cannot be named because he is a minor, in the south of the country on 3 November 2019.

Furthermore, Mr Delaney said that there was a certain “family relationship” between the accused and deceased and as a result the accused man could not be named in the context of the location of the offence.

Llewellyn Court estate, Ballinteer, Dublin.

The scene outside the house in which the bodies of 37-year-old Seema Banu, her daughter Asfira, 11, and her son Faizan, 6, were found on Wednesday.

Via RTÉ:

Officers have been in contact with the woman’s partner and father of the children, who is distressed and has been given access to medical treatment.

The results of the post-mortem examinations, which are ongoing, will determine the course of the investigation, but the case has been allocated the resources of a murder investigation.

Gardaí have appealed once again to members of the public not to circulate speculation on social media. They described this as “uninformed and unhelpful to the criminal investigation”.
