Alan Hawe, 40, killed wife Clodagh Hawe, 39, and his sons Liam, 13, Niall, 11, and Ryan, 6, in August 2016.

He then left a series of suicide notes and calmly transferred money between accounts, before he himself at the family home in Ballyjamesduff, County Cavan, Ireland.

An inquest into the deaths found that Hawe, who was deputy head teacher at Castlerahan National School, had suffered from severe depression with “psychotic” symptoms and “delusional beliefs” before the murders.

Speaking out at for the first time, Clodagh’s mum Mary Coll and sister Jacqueline Connolly said they still have unanswered questions.

They told Claire Byrne Live, broadcast on RTÉ One television on Monday, that his actions were “not depression” but “evil”.

Describing how six-year-old Ryan died, Jacqueline said sick Hawe had used a “sawing” motion on his own son.

She said: “Ryan was the smallest of the three of them, he was very slight and thin for his age but during the inquest we were told that he used a sawing action on Ryan and that he just threw the duvet cover over all of them and left the knife that he used on Ryan’s pillow.

“That is evil. That is not depression. That is force brutality and it is control.”

And the family said they still do not know the full extend of what Hawe was hiding, only that he was involved in a conflict at work and had been attending counselling.

Before she died, Clodagh revealed that her husband had confessed to watching pornography and told her he felt guilty about it.

But that wasn’t all he was hiding.

Mary said: “We do know now that we didn’t at the time that he was dressing in Clodagh’s underwear.

“I mean Clodagh would never ever in her wildest dreams have thought of that, none of us would. We only found that out after the inquest.

“He said as well (in his suicide note) when I go back to school it will all blow up.

“What we don’t know. Was he going to face a grievance?

“If he was masturbating in the school well at the very least he was guilty of professional misconduct. That was at the very least.”

The family deny that Hawe was trying to trying to protect his wife and sons by killing them, blaming his arrogance for this assumption that they would be better off dead than living without him.

Mary added: “He had the illusion that they couldn’t manage their lives without him, they couldn’t live without him but that was how he perceived himself, that’s how important he thought he was.

“Clodagh was a professional woman, she was assertive, she had three lovely healthy children.

“It would have been hard but they would have survived and we would have helped them.

“Life wouldn’t have been the same again for them certainly but children grow up and and they live their own lives.”
