A renewed appeal has been issued for help in locating 45-year-old Bernadette Connolly, who has been missing from the Swords area of Dublin since Friday 7 January.

Ms Connolly, who was last seen in the Donabate area, is described as being 5' 6" (1.68m) tall, of slim build, with hazel eyes and long black hair.

Gardaí say that Bernadette was wearing a black Nike training top, black Nike leggings, and black trainers with a white sole and a black woolly hat with black bobble at the time she went missing.

She was last seen after she was dropped by a taxi at the carpark of the Shoreline Hotel, Donabate, when she walked towards the entrance to Donabate Beach.

Today marks three weeks since Bernadette Connolly was last seen.

Gardaí are today at the entrance of Donabate Beach by the Shoreline Hotel and at the public car park at Malahide Beach.

New CCTV of Bernadette Connolly's last known whereabouts has been released.

Gardaí are looking to speak with and identify anyone that may have been on Donabate Beach on Friday, 7 January.

Gardaí previously appealed for any road users who may have camera footage, and who were in the Donabate area on Friday 7 January between 11.30am and midday to contact them.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Swords Garda Station on 01 666 4700, the garda confidential line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.

Speaking at the beach, Bernadette's daughter Jade Connolly made a personal appeal for anyone with information to come forward and asked people to "jog their memories."

"This beach was active that day, people walked by my mam," Ms Connolly said.

"I just appeal to anyone who has maybe photographs from the beach that day, or any dash cam footage or maybe even CCTV if they are in a house nearby."

Ms Connolly also said people may have seen something from the Malahide side of the estuary.

"How no one has seen anything, you know is just really beyond me and that's why I’m here, I’m here to appeal to people, whatever little detail… please it’s not little, anything will help," Ms Connolly said.

A vigil for Bernadette Connolly was held at St Cronan's Church in Swords this day last week.
