  • Body parts discovered in a waste recycling plant

    Human remains were discovered at a waste recycling plant at Killeen Road, Ballyfermot in Dublin, on the 31st July at 11pm. The area was immediately sealed off and over the next number of days Gardaí sifted through around 1000 tones of waste at the plant where the remains were found. 400 skips had been dropped into that bay over the two proceeding days, skips that would have been collected from all Dublin and the wider Leinster area. During the Garda searches further remains, belonging to the same body, were uncovered.

    The post mortem indicates that the remains belong to a male victim, 25-45 years old, 5'8-6 foot in height, with metal screws in his head from a "bilateral decompressive craniotomy". Gardaí are trying to establish his identity.

  • Tommy Kennedy Missing person

    81-year old Tommy Kennedy is missing from his home in Finglas since the 29th of July. The last definite sighting of Tommy was putting the bins out outside the family home on Virginia Park at around 9:20pm. When his grandson came home later that evening he raised the alarm. Garda, Civil Defence and the local communities have been out nightly searching the area for Tommy, to no avail.

    On Wednesday the 20th August there was a report of a possible sighting of Tommy from the time he went missing, from a taxi man, returned from holiday. He remembers a man, answering Tommy's description, hailing a taxi on Liam Meadows Road in the early hours of Wednesday the 30th of July. The details of this possible sighting widen the search area to Baldoyle, where the taxi man dropped the man off.

    Appeal:

    • If you have seen Tommy Kennedy since the 29th July please contact the Gardaí.
    • Description of Tommy Kennedy; 5'2" / 5'3" in height, grey hair and wearing glasses. He was wearing a dark jacket, dark trousers and a blue and white striped polo shirt when he went missing

    Clare Kennedy, Tommy's daughter-in-law: "If you know anything, if you can just even jog your memory back to the 29th July and just contact any Garda station and let us know that Tommy's okay or that you've seen him, we need a possitive lead just to get this moving again."

    Ross Kennedy, Tommy's grandson: "This is completely out of character for my Granddad"

  • Raid on a pub in Finglas, August Bank Holiday Weekend

    An employee of the Shamrock Lodge pub started work at 6:15 am on Monday 4th of August, when two armed raiders pretending to be sent from the Gas Company to deal with an emergency, forced their way onto the premises. They threatened the member of staff, forcing him to show them where the keys were kept, which they used to unlock the yard and let three more of their gang into the pub. The raiders tied the employee up, leaving him locked in the safe room of the pub. They made their getaway with a large quantity of cash, cigarettes and alcohol.

    Appeal:

    • Were you in the Finglas village area on the morning of Bank Holiday Monday, the 4th August 2014? Did you see five men acting suspiciously?
    • Did you see a light blue Ford Transit van, (possibly a 2001 to 2007 model) in the area? Gardaí believe this was the type of van used by the raiders.
