Claire Byrne show. Her name was Clodagh

Just watching the programme her sister and mother are so dignified. How have the school not given them answers? Tragic

Horrific ordeal these poor people have had to endure. So brave of them to go on national tv and speak about it.

Very poignant stuff. The school, the councillor, the INTO and AGS seem to be united in denying those women closure. If it's true that your man had never been diagnosed with depression by his GP in all those decades, it also makes the conclusion of the inquest open to further questions.

Watched this myself. Clodagh’s mother and sister were very brave and dignified in telling her story. Heartbreaking.

It sheds a little more light on this horrific and shocking murder-suicide, and I am of the opinion that Alan Hawe was a very insecure, domineering and controlling individual who callously premeditated and plotted the heinous and barbaric slaughter of his family.

The fact that there may be quite a few people out there that have the answers that this family so deserve and are entitled to imo is sickening. Its like they are supporting a dead murderer and letting the family suffer on unnecessarily without the last few bits of the puzzle is just wrong,someone needs to tell them the full story.

The porn addiction was clearly a central issue.

Why was he seeking counselling fro it?

One of the most upsetting things I’ve ever watched. I’m glad we finally got to see a true representation of the man, a vile, abusive and narcissistic bully; and not the sympathetic portrayal that flooded the media in the aftermath. It didn’t even reference how he took his own life because who actually gives a shlt about what he did to himself. To take their lives is one thing, but what he did was overkill and savage slaughter. How anyone can take a hatchet to someone they claim to love, and he moved furniture weeks prior shows he had been planning it for a while. If there’s a hell I hope he’s rotting. Depression my hole. How insulting to many people who struggle with depression every day and don’t manage to annihilate their whole family.

I'm putting 2 + 2 together here.

He had a porn addiction that he had been seeking professional help for.

There is clearly a problem in his professional life that isnt being disclosed or discussed. A profession that involves interaction with kids


Do you see where this is pointing?

Addiction to porn.

Apparently he was caught masturbating at a school computer where he was a teacher

I watched it too. It was heartbreaking. Clodagh's mother and sister are so strong and brave. It's an absolute disgrace that they have not gotten any answers from anyone. It was terrible and horrific hearing what that evil depraved man did to poor Clodagh and her three beautiful boys.

He was an evil, evil piece of self absorbed inhuman filth. Depression my ar5e.
All he cared about was himself.
I'm agnostic but if there is a hell I hope he is roaring in it.


That poor family. Absolutely heartbreaking

Edit
I remember at the time when this happened and there was some serious questions on the thread that was here in relation to this case about him being buried with those week kids. Im delighted they had him exhumed.

The mother mentioned that he told his wife about this.

I know that the incident at the computer would have been the source of humiliation but he could have overcome that. Why would this be kept quiet for so long?

I wouldnt call it trivial but given the circumstances how can keeping it quiet be justified? At worst he would have lost his job

I just feel that there is more to this
