A man has appeared in court charged with the murders of his siblings in Tallaght, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
18-year-old Lisa Cash, and her eight-year-old twin brother and sister, Christy and Chelsea Cawley, died after they were attacked and stabbed at their family home in Rossfield Avenue, in the Brookfield area.
Andy Cash with an address at Rossfield Avenue appeared before Judge Patricia McNamara at a special sitting of Dublin District Court last night.
During the brief hearing, Garda Rob Whitty gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution. He said the accused was arrested for the murder of Lisa Cash, and Christy and Chelsea Cawley at 7.43pm.
He was then charged with the three counts of murder.
Dressed in a grey sweater, black tracksuit bottoms and runners, Andy Cash did not speak during the brief hearing.
There was no application for bail as bail cannot be granted in the district court in a murder case.
Judge McNamara granted Mr Cash free legal aid and remanded him in custody to appear again by video link at Cloverhill District Court on 9 September.
