Inquest into Hawe murder suicide set for December
Evil killer left note explaining actions
A DATE has been set for the inquest into the murders of Clodagh Hawe and her three sons – and the suicide of her killer husband Alan.
Deputy school principal Hawe, 40, killed teacher Clodagh, 39, and their kids Liam, 14, Niall, 11, and six-year-old Ryan in August last year. He left a number of notes claiming to explain his brutal actions and requested that his ashes be scattered at sea. Dr Mary Flanagan’s office at the Coroner Service confirmed Monday, December 18, as a provisional date for the inquest into the five deaths. The hearing is expected to last for four days and comes more than 15 months after the killings that shocked Ireland. On the night Sunday, August 28, 2016, Hawe gathered weapons before he attacked and killed his wife as she browsed online for family holidays. He then killed his sons in their pyjamas and transferred money from shared bank accounts into an account in his name. He left a note explaining his actions, pinned another note to a door and then hanged himself. The following day, Clodagh’s mother arrived at the house to find the note which warned the finder not to enter the house but to call gardai.
