Murderer of Kilkenny woman and her children is denied parole

“We have a little bit of respite for a couple of years”.

The words of John Whelan whose sister Sharon and two nieces, Zara & Nadia, were murdered at their Windgap home on Christmas morning 2008.

At a hearing yesterday, it was announced that their killer, Brian Hennessy who’s serving a life sentence in prison, has been denied parole.

However he can apply again in three years time.

Speaking to KCLR, John says parole time is always hugely traumatic for his family.
