The funeral of Donegal pensioners Kathleen and Jimmy Cuddihy, who were found dead in their home on Thursday, will take place tomorrow.
Jimmy Cuddihy was a native of Piltown in Kilkenny, but moved to Donegal in the 1960’s. He was a retired teacher and taught technically drawing in Carndonagh.
On Friday night, at a special sitting of Ballyshannon court, Julian Cuddihy was charged with the murder of his parents.
The 42-year-old was remanded in custody and Judge Kevin Kilraine directed that he undergo a psychiatric assessment.
Meanwhile, the Cuddihy family has released a statement asking for their community to be allowed observe local traditions without media intrusion in the coming days.
