A man in his thirties has been charged in relation to the death of his father Harry Sheeran, who was found dead in his south Dublin home on Father’s Day.

The 65-year-old carpenter died of stab wounds at the house in Carriglea View, Firhouse, at about 11.50pm.

On Tuesday morning a 30-year-old man appeared in court charged with the murder on Sunday night.

Gareth Sheeran, with an address at Carriglea View in Firhouse, was remanded in custody for a week after appearing at Tallaght District Court.

He is accused of murdering Harry Sheeran at his home in Carriglea View.

Judge Patricia MacNamara granted Mr Sheeran free legal aid and remanded him to appear again by video link at Cloverhill District Court next Tuesday.

Neighbours in the quiet Carriglea estate reacted with shock following the death of the father of two.

“He was a gentle giant. It’s awful,” said one local man.

Another neighbour said Mr Sheeran was semi-retired. “He was a lovely man. He was quiet and had two grown-up children,” the neighbour said.
