Twin boys stabbed to death by their brother who then killed himself

9 year old twin brothers Patrick and Thomas O'Driscoll were stabbed to death yesterday September 4th by their older half brother Jonathan, 20, who then killed himself about an hour later. Read the full story below...
Nine-year-old Patrick and Thomas O’Driscoll were dressed in their school uniforms when found dead in separate bedrooms by their younger brothers, aged three and five.
Their half-sibling Jonathan, 20, sped from the scene in Charleville, Co Cork, and was discovered hanged 15km away.
The tragic boys’ parents Tom and Ellen were shopping in nearby Kilmallock, Limerick, at the time.A security source told the Irish Mirror : “It was a frenzied attack, the boys were stabbed multiple times. It’s understood there are psychological issues involved.”
Other sources last night claimed Jonathan was adopted before the O’Driscolls later went on to have the twins.
The nine-year-olds, who were being minded by older sibling Jonathan, died in separate bedrooms hours after he collected them from school.
Their bloodied bodies were found shortly before 5pm by their younger brothers, aged three and five.
The toddlers then raced from the home and began screaming for help through a neighbour’s hedge. As a major emergency operation swung into action, Jonathan, 20, fled the scene.
He was found hanged from a tree by a riverbank in nearby Buttevant, an hour later.
The scene at the family home was last night described as horrific.
One source said: “Those poor little boys suffered a shocking death.”
Last night, the events leading to the shocking double killing remained unclear – but sources said the killer must have “just snapped”.
A next-door neighbour who raised the alarm said: “We were at home at about 5pm and the two young lads came over to the hedge.
“They were screaming at the top of their voices. They were roaring for my dad. We rang the [police] straight away.”
Schoolboys Patrick and Thomas – members of the settled Traveller community – were described by a neighbour as “a pair of rascals”.
Relatives were too distraught to comment last night.
Jonathan was minding the two boys while their parents were six miles away in Kilmallock, Co Limerick, and had collected them from Bawnogue school.
A car was seen driving away from the house after the attack in Deerpark, and just over an hour later Jonathan was found dead.
He was discovered by three children – a 10-year-old and two 14-year-olds.
HSE Air Corps air ambulance, based at Costume Barracks, Athlone, was dispatched to the family home to take the boys to hospital, however it was quickly stood down when it became clear the twins were already dead.
Ambulance crews from Mallow were met by the horrific bloody scene.
Around 30 grieving family members and friends gathered outside the small cottage, which was sealed off last night.
Local priest Fr Tom Naughton said the tragedy had shaken the entire community.
He added: “I am shocked, I know the family myself. I have prayed with the family before. Obviously any family who would have experienced a tragedy of this nature would be devastated.
“This it is deeply upsetting for any community, especially for one as close-knit as we are. We will offer our support to them, the whole community will be behind them at this very difficult time.”
Friends of the family took to Facebook last night to pay their respects, with one saying: “God it’s a sin what happened them two twins today, may God help the family that lost two beautiful children, may God give them a good bed in heaven.”
Another posted: “RIP to the two twins TomTom & Paddy that were stabbed to death, so sad two innocent children.”
A distant relative of the two boys said: “It really is a sin. God only knows what pain Thomas and Ellen are going through waiting years for their twin boys to only have nine years and their lives were taken.”
Police confirmed in a statement last night: “Officers in Charleville, Co Cork are investigating all the circumstances following the discovery of the bodies of two young boys in a house in Deerpark, Charleville shortly before 5pm on September 4.
“They were pronounced dead at the scene. The bodies remain at the scene and the area has been sealed off for technical examination, diversions are in place.
“The office of the State Pathologist has been notified and post mortemsare expected to be carried out."

how is it white people are quick to blame psychology for all senseless act, can't it be done just because? The killer taking his life because he felt guilty and distraught. You mustn't be cuckoo to commit a senseless crime, the guy simply might have being angered or something and surely wasn't depression or bipolar.

What an unfortunate incident. However, as it is said, that there is no smoke without fire, other parents should learn from the incendent. I believe the older boy may have grievances against his parents about unequal love they are showing to him and the other twin brothers.

It may be that they were showing more love toward the twin more than him that may be why he killed the boys before killing himselh.

We should learn to show equal love to our children.
