i assume when you said you have a live neutrel this should of been id sleeved as a switch wire, my immediate thought would be to then strap your first light across to the other two , the 3 lights would come on with the pull cord

See the electrical projects in the projects section of the webiste Lawrence, there is one about replacing a light fitting which will show you how to do this and also show you why one of the switch wires is black but is also live.
