'If you are a friend or acquaintance of Barry and have any information that could help locate him please call us or Crimestoppers.'

Mr Corcoran went to the post office in Wicklow town on the morning of July 6, before taking a bus to Dublin.

He left behind his mobile phone and passport at his home in Ocean View, Wicklow town.

The 39-year-old spent some time in the north inner city before boarding the Luas Red Line to Kylemore Stop on the Naas Road.y He arrived there at 2 p.m. He was met by a friend and bought some goods in a local shop at 2.30 p.m. He returned again at 6.45 p.m.

Later on he met some friends on Cremona Road, Ballyfermot, and was last seen by them that same night.

No arrests have been made but a number of people have been interviewed in relation to Mr Corcoran's disappearance.

Searches were also carried out in West Kildare and Clondalkin without any success.

Mr Corcoran is 5'11 in height and is of thin build.

He has short grey hair and blue eyes and walks with a slight shuffle. He also has an old scar on the bridge of his nose. When last seen he was wearing a dark rain jacket, blue jeans and black Puma runners.
