Renewed information appeal on 21st anniversary of murder of Raonaid Murray

The case remains open.

September 4, 2020 marks the 21st Anniversary of the murder of 17-year-old Raonaid Murray.

Gardaí and Raonaid’s family are desperately still trying to solve the case, over two decades on. They have issued a renewed appeal for information in a bid to bring justice to the teenager's killer.

Raonaid Murray was last seen alive at approximately 11.20pm on Friday, 3rd September 1999 when she made her way home from Dun Laoghaire town centre.

Her body was then found at Silchester Crescent, Glenageary at 12.33am, Saturday 4th September 1999, less than 500 yards from her home.

"Many people who were Raonaid’s age are now parents themselves with children, some of whom would now be close to Raonaid’s age," say Gardaí.

"We would ask them to reflect now with the benefit of maturity and hindsight on any information which may be of assistance to the investigation."

"If any person has any information which could assist in identifying a motive for the murder of Raonaid and/or if any person has any doubts about the truth of an alibi already provided, we would appeal for your immediate assistance," they added.

"You may unknowingly be shielding a killer."

Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information to contact the Garda Incident Room at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station on 01 666 5000 or 01 6665012, the Garda Confidential line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

A reward for critical information received is available from Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.
