At least 100 people are participating in daily searches in the north Dublin area for Mr Kennedy, an 81-year-old grandfather who has been missing from his home since last week.

There have been a number of possible sightings in recent days, and his daughter-in-law Clare Kennedy last night asked for anyone who may have seen him to contact his family or the gardai.

He was last seen outside his home in Virginia Park, Finglas, last Tuesday night at 9pm, wearing dark trousers and a white polo top with blue stripes.

Meanwhile, Co Laois councillor Raymond Cribbin has said that the small Portarlington community has come together in the wake of the disappearance of mother-of-two Carmel Tynan.

The 54-year-old was last seen on Patrick Street in Portarlington, close to her home, on Sunday at 10.30am. She is described as being 5' 5'' tall, of slight build with short blond hair and hazel-coloured eyes.
