A new picture has emerged of slain brothers Paddy and Willie Hennessy.
The pair were brutally murdered by their brother Johnny, 59, last Friday. It is thought the rampage was spurred after an argument over their timber business.
Paddy, 60, and 66-year-old Willie are pictured in what looks like a pub.
Meanwhile, the Garda watchdog is probing reports one of the men called local officers hours before the bloodbath to say help was not needed.
