Mother And Children Found Dead In Dublin Named

A mother and her two children whose bodies were found at a house in south Dublin on Wednesday afternoon have been named locally.

They were Seema Banu, 37, Asfira Syed, 11 and Faizan Syed, 6, according to Irish broadcaster RTÉ.

Gardaí (Irish police) were called to the house in Llywellen Court in Ballinteer at about 12:00 local time after neighbours became concerned.

The deaths have been described as “unexplained”.

Police said they were still investigating the circumstances of what happened.

A candlelit vigil was held for the family in the Llewellyn estate on Wednesday night.

RTÉ reported that police have been in contact with the woman’s partner who was described as being in a distressed state.

It follows an angry backlash over how the information gathered by the Mother and Baby Homes Commission would be used.

Much of the evidence it heard was given in private and legally protected.

A database of 60,000 records is to be transferred to the child and family agency Tusla, while the remaining records will be sealed for 30 years.

Campaigners and some of those seeking more information about their own life story, including their natural mother and their adoption, said sealing the records for 30 years would deny them an opportunity to find out more about themselves and their history.

‘Regrets the hurt’

An Irish Government statement on Wednesday evening said the cabinet had a “detailed reflection” on issues raised in recent days, and said it “acknowledges and regrets the genuine hurt felt by many people.”

“That is an important clarification that we have now,” Mr O’Gorman said.

“It is not the solution to all the issues as regards access to information, but it is a significant development and I welcome that clarification,” he told RTÉ News.
