Two separate funerals for father and sons
The father and two sons, who died in an alleged suicide in their family home in North Cork, are due to be buried in two separate funerals in the coming days.

Gardaí believes Mark O’Sullivan, 26, was shot dead in the family bed by his brother or father on Monday, apparently as part of a dispute over a will, according to the Irish Times.

His father Tadhg O’Sullivan (59) and his brother Diarmuid (23) then appear to have gone to a field some distance from the house in Assolas between Kanturk and Castlemagner, where they apparently took their own life.

The three men are survived by Ann O’Sullivan, described in the obituaries as “Broken Hearted Woman” by Mr. O’Sullivan and “Broken Hearted Mother” by Mark and Diarmuid.

A private requiem mass for Tadhg and Diarmuid O’Sullivan takes place on Friday afternoon at St. Mary’s Church in Castlemagner and is then buried in the nearby St. Brigid’s Cemetery.

Mark O’Sullivan is buried on Saturday afternoon after a funeral mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Kanturk, which will also be private to family members.

His funeral is said to be in an unknown location.


Both burial sets will take place in accordance with current HSE and government guidelines on Covid-19. Mark O’Sullivan’s funeral will be streamed live and can be viewed at

There are no live streaming facilities at St. Mary’s Church in Castlemagner, but members of the local Tadhg and Diarmuid O’Sullivan ward are expected to pay their respects by lining the streets of the village.


Kanturk shootings: Gardaí believes the older son …

Local Pastor Canon Toby Bluitt said the people of Kanturk and Castlemagner parishes expressed their deepest condolences to Ms. O’Sullivan “for the tragic loss of her husband Tadhg and sons Mark and Diarmuid”.

The Lake Garda investigations into the three murders are ongoing and, after post-mortem examinations, Gardaí is satisfied that one of the three men was shot several times.
