Parents are shot dead at party house

Detectives last night were trying to piece together clues to the double killing of two young parents.

The victims, both in their 20s, were found with gunshot wounds in separate areas of a house in Southill in Limerick.

They were named locally as Dessie Kelly and Breda Waters.

It is understood the pair had three young children and had been living in the house in the O'Malley Park estate with Mr Kelly's mother.

Police wanted to speak to a number of people who were at a party in the house on Saturday night.
