Two brothers killed at Cork farm, van linked to incident found at church

Gardaí are expected to open a murder inquiry later today following the discovery late last night of the bodies of two brothers at their isolated farm in north Cork.

Both men were in their late 60s. A third brother, also in his late 60s and the registered owner of the farm, could not be found this morning.

Gardaí believe the men were killed before the suspect fled in a van belonging to one of the dead men.

This van has since been found abandoned at St Joseph’s Church at Killacluig just northwest of Mitchelstown.

Gardaí have sealed off the area and armed officers have begun a search.
