Andrew McGinley has shared the final video he ever took of his three children Conor, Darragh and Carla.

The video, which was taken two years ago today, shows the three siblings playing on a trampoline six days before they died on January 24th 2020.

Taking to Twitter, grieving father Andrew shared: “#OnThisDay 2020

The last ever clip of Conor (9), Darragh (7), and Carla (3) was taken on January 18th 2020”

The father of three added that while his heart is broken everyday, the three campaigns he set up in their memory gives him purpose.

“I miss them every second of every day and my heart is broken but #ConorsClips #AsDarraghDid and #SnowmanForCarla give me purpose.”

“#Conor #Darragh #Carla”

As Darragh Did is a charity set up in memory of Andrew’s son Darragh aged 7. The charity aims to fund local clubs, groups and projects with donations to be used to encourage participation in sports, as Darragh was involved with GAA and Hurling.

Andrew also set up Conor’s Clips on YouTube to fulfil his nine-year-old son Conor’s dream of having his own YouTube channel.

Andrew’s 3-year-old daughter wanted to build a snowman, but because it doesn’t snow in Ireland very often, Mr McGinley organised a colouring competition ‘Snowman for Carla’.

All three children died at their home in Newcastle, Co Dublin on January 24th 2020.

In May 2021, their mother, Deirdre Morley was found not guilty of their murders by reason of insanity and committed to the Central Mental Hospital.

Last year, Andrew said that he just wants the world to know about his children after it was revealed that he was dropped from The Late Late Show line-up at the last minute.

Andrew was due to appear on the Late Late show on October 8th to promote As Darragh Did, however he was dropped from the line-up last minute after a complaint.

“Thanks for your messages. I just want the world to know about Conor, Darragh & Carla.”

In his tweet, the grieving father added a link to a charity raffle in aid of As Darragh Did, a campaign Andrew set up in memory of his son aged 7 and defended the potential of appearing on the national talk show.

Andrew regularly shares pictures and videos of his beloved children via the Twitter account he set up for ‘Conor’s Clips’.
