Associated Press maintains its still not clear to gardai just how the children had died when they attended the scene.

They have been named as Conor ( 9), Darragh (7) and Carla (3) McGinley.

According to The Sun, Gardai suspect the three children may have been "drugged" or "poisoned". A female relative, aged in her 40's, was found at the scene and is now receiving medical attention in Tallaght Hospital.

The bodies of the three children have since been removed to the city morgue.

Garda forensic collision investigators have examined the crash site and both vehicles involved and the road has since fully reopened to traffic.

The house remains sealed off as a crime scene.

A postmortem is due to take place later today to determine cause of death.

Councillor for the area Emer Higgins described the events as an "unimaginable tragedy".
