Three people are dead following a suspected double murder suicide in Co Kerry.

Gardaí were called to a house near the village of Lixnaw yesterday evening where they found the body of a woman in her 60s and her son, a man in his 20s inside the house.

They had been shot.

Officers then found the body of the father, a man in his 60s, outside at the back of the house.

He had also been shot and a firearm has been recovered at the scene.

The scene has been preserved and the office of the State Pathologist and Garda Technical Bureau have been contacted.

Gardaí say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the shootings.

It’s being treated as a double murder and a suicide but investigations are still at an early stage.

Officers are now trying to confirm the timeline and exact nature of what happened.
