The father of three children who were found dead in Dublin has released a statement and has said there is only "devastation, grief and anguish".

Gardai are waiting to be given permission to interview their mother.

She is currently in a stable condition in hospital.

In a statement released through Gardai Andrew McGinley said: "There are no words. There is only devastation, grief and anguish. Every breath is a struggle.

"Conor, Darragh and Carla are adored. They all had beautiful, bright futures ahead of them with family, friends and a community who love them.
