A 26-year-old man has been arrested this evening in connection with the deaths of two elderly brothers at their home in Castlebar, Co Mayo.


Gardaí believe the two pensioners were beaten to death in the early hours of this morning. One of the victims would have celebrated his 70th birthday today.


The arrested man is currently being detained at Castlebar Garda station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.


The dead men were described by locals as vulnerable and mentally impaired. One of the deceased was deaf and non verbal, having suffered a work place accident when living in the UK around 30 years ago.


The remains of the men, aged 68 and 69 years, were discovered at their house on New Antrim Street, Castlebar, Co Mayo, at 7am. The discovery was made when a home help called to the property, as was normal several times a day.


One of the bodies was found inside the house in a downstairs bedroom and the other outside the property in the back yard.


The small two-storey house were they lived and died backs onto the constituency office of Taoiseach Enda Kenny, which is around 50 metres away around the corner on Tucker Street.

Its a very sick society where anger is being directed at the most vulnerable and most innocent, rather than at those who are most guilty.  But, of course, the thugs who did this are just following the lead given by Fine Gael and Labour.
