Woman who survived Kanturk murder suicide dies following long illness

A woman who survived a murder-suicide incident which claimed the lives of her husband and two sons in north Cork has died following a long illness.

Anne O’Sullivan from Raheen in Kanturk died on Wednesday morning some six months after the murder of her son, Mark (26) by her husband, Tadg (59) and her younger son, Diarmuid (23).

Ms O’Sullivan (60) was at the isolated farmhouse on the morning of October 26th last when Tadhg and Diarmuid shot Mark in his bedroom in a row over a will leaving him the 115-acre farm.

Ms O’Sullivan fled the scene but Tadg and Diarmuid caught up with her in the farm yard and told her she would have to live with the torment of what had happened.

Ms O’Sullivan had been discharged from hospital just two weeks earlier after surgery for a terminal medical condition.

She managed to raise the alarm just after 7am on October 26th, telling the neighbours her husband and Diarmuid had shot Mark, prompting a major garda operation involving armed gardaí from Cork and Dublin.

Gardaí surrounded the house initially thinking they might be facing a hostage situation and knowing there were firearms registered to the O’Sullivans before entering the property after midday.

Mark’s body was recovered from a bedroom, having been shot up to seven times while the bodies of Tadg and Diarmuid were found in a field, each with single gunshot wounds to the head.

Gardaí said that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident and were treating it as a murder suicide and would prepare a file on the matter for the coroner’s court.

Ms O’Sullivan later attended the funerals of Tadg and Diarmuid who were buried together in St Brigid’s cemetery in Castlemagner following a joint funeral at St Mary’s Church in Castlemagner.

A day later she attended a separate funeral for Mark at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Kanturk. Mark was buried in Ms O’Sullivan’s own Cronin family grave in another cemetery.

It’s understood that Ms O’Sullivan, a former nurse, had not returned to live at the farmhouse where the tragedy unfolded but had been staying with cousins who lived nearby in Castlemagner.

IIProp (International Industrial Properties) has successfully delivered the initial phase of its built-to-suit project in the Spanish city of Murcia. The joint venture has also launched a new development project at a prime location in Nadarzyn, Warsaw South, Poland. The scheme is located in Murcia’s San Andres industrial park and offers 22,346m². The project is set to add another building of over 23,000m², bringing the total development area to 46,600m² GLA. Construction of a 23,000m² follow-on component is under way and scheduled for completion in January 2023. The project marks an important milestone for the IIProp’s expansion in Spain, where the platform has secured pipeline for development of some 63,000m² GLA in the Murcia and Barcelona regions. The development comes with excellent connectivity and visibility as it sits alongside the A7 highway, part of the Mediterranean transit corridor that links Spanish and Portuguese ports with mainland Europe. The project is set to obtain “Very Good” BREEAM certificate, which will be supported by green solutions such as solar panels, charging stations for electric cars, power sockets for electric bicycles and scooters as well as bicycle parking space and a bee shelter.

 

Nebil Senman, Managing Partner at Griffin Capital Partners, said: “The logistics market in Europe experienced an unprecedented growth during the pandemic and despite the geopolitical turmoil the tenant demand remains strong. We selectively are developing projects in Murcia and Warsaw with highest ESG standards and securing highest tenant covenants to fulfill core investor’s requirements. We plan to continue to build up carefully our European logistics footprint by selectively adding projects in core European markets as well as through converting our well-positioned land bank into standing assets.”

 

Maciej Dyjas, Managing Partner at Griffin Capital Partners, commented: “The projects in Murcia and Warsaw are another success stories in our strategic partnership with Panattoni. We continue to screen new European markets for entry and already begun working on potential development projects in countries like France, Italy, and Austria. In parallel, the IIProp’s pipeline stands at ca. 430,000m² GLA, despite latest disposals completed in Germany.
