Gardaí do not believe at this stage that three young children whose bodies were found in Co Dublin died of natural causes.
Investigators are awaiting the outcome of post-mortem examinations to determine the cause of what gardaí described as “sudden” and “unexplained” deaths. 
The bodies were found in a house at Parson’s Court in Newcastle village, northwest of Rathcoole, last night.
A woman in her 40s, who is believed to be the children’s mother, has been admitted to Tallaght hospital.
The house remains sealed off as a crime scene.
Gardaí were called to the house after 7pm last night and first found a woman on the street in a disorientated state.
They then went into the house and found the bodies of three young children, two boys and a girl believed to be aged four, eight and ten years old.
A note was also found at the scene.
Gardaí said they are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident.
Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact the incident room at Clondalkin Garda Station on 01-6667600.
