The bodies of a 37-year-old woman and two young children, a six-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl, have been discovered in a house in Dublin.

The house is on Llewellyn Drive in Ballinteer, south Dublin, and Gardaí are currently at the scene.

Gardaí from Dundrum Garda Station responded to a call from neighbours at Llewellyn Drive, Ballinteer shortly before midday today. Gardaí discovered the three bodies on arrival at the scene.

It’s believed the bodies are those of a mother and her two children.
