Mossie, Eileen and Jamie O'Sullivan were found dead in a suspected murder suicide at their home in Lixnaw, north Kerry

It was around 8pm on Tuesday when John Mahony phoned his neighbour Mossie O’Sullivan for a chat. As well as living close to each other in the rural hinterland of Lixnaw, Co Kerry, the two men were firm friends, speaking to each other on a regular basis, either in person or on the phone.

“I wanted to talk to him about something,” he told the Irish Independent.
