Funeral of three siblings murdered in Tallaght takes place

THE FUNERAL of Lisa Cash, Chelsea and Christy Cawley, has taken place with their brother Mikey being hailed for his “bravery” in raising the alarm as the tragic event which led to their deaths transpired.

Lisa (18) and her eight-year-old twin siblings, Chelsea and Christy, were killed in a violent attack in their home, with their brother Mikey hospitalised with non-life-threatening injuries last Sunday.

Fr Paul O’Driscoll, chaplain of the Dublin Travelling community, was chief celebrant of the funeral mass this morning and paid tribute to their 14-year-old brother, Mikey, for raising the alarm.

Mikey showed great “bravery and strength” in going to get help on the night in question, mourners at the funeral mass in St Aidan’s Church were told.

“Your bravery and strength to raise the alarm, to go and get help is an inspiration of courage and love,” said Fr O’Driscoll.

Three white coffins of Lisa, Chelsea and Christy were brought to the Brookfield church in horse-drawn carriages on Thursday evening as part of the removal service.

The community lined the road outside the church as a piper lead the cortege of family and friends of the deceased.

A football and football gloves belonging to Christy, a cushion and teddy bear for Chelsea, and books about Elvis Presley and driving lessons for Lisa were all brought to the alter.

Following the funeral mass, the three horse-drawn carriages brought Lisa, Chelsea, and Christy, past their family home at Rossfield Avenue one last time.
