Slain family have much in common with our own loved ones overseas
THE killings in Killorglin have been formally declared by gardai as a double-murder investigation. This is a deeply distressing incident which has blighted the community in one of the country's most scenic and tranquil areas in the Laune river valley.
Jolanta Lubiene was a 27-year-old mother from Lithuania who came to Co Kerry seven years ago. Her seven-year-old daughter, Enrika, who went to the local school was the centre of her world.
Jolanta's story, and that of her husband, Marius Luby, is typical of many other migrants who came here over the past 15 years. Jolanta had worked in various jobs and was employed at nearby St Joseph's Nursing Home at the time of her death.
