A 24-year-old man has been charged with the murder of his two sisters and brother in Tallaght.
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, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Andy Cash, also from Rossfield Avenue, replied "no comment" when he was charged with the murders.
He appeared before Judge Patricia McNamara at a special late sitting of Dublin District Court on Monday night.
Dressed in a grey sweater, black tracksuit bottoms and runners, he sat silently on the defendant’s bench at the side of the courtroom.
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 and he was then charged with the three counts of murder.
His reply to the charges after caution was "no comment" to each charge and he was handed a true copy of each charge sheet.
Garda Whitty asked the court to remand Mr Cash in custody to appear via video link at Cloverhill District Court on Friday.
Judge McNamara granted that order and legal aid, noting the "very serious charges" and that there was no objection.
