THE brother of missing Tipperary man, Stephen Cullinan (25), has launched a fresh appeal for information after footage emerged of his missing brother in St Stephen’s Green in Dublin last Thursday.

Mr Cullinan is the son of North Tipperary IFA Chair, Tim Cullinan. The Irish Farmers Association has appealed for help online.

The University of Limerick student, from Ballymackey, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary was reported missing from Castletroy, Co Limerick but it’s now known he was last spotted in St Stephen’s Green on Thursday November 2.

Tim Cullinan praised search efforts and said he just wants his son to make contact.

He told  “He (Stephen) went from Limerick to Dublin sometime on Thursday and the last ping (from his phone) was that evening from Stephen’s Green. The phone is dead now. There’s been no communication since.

“We’re just saying to Stephen, if he’s out there, just to phone his mam and say if he’s safe. That’s all we want to know.

“If anyone sees him, contact Gardai. All I can say is we really appreciate all the help from the University (of Limerick) and everybody. Everybody, from all walks of life, are trying to do everything they can. Of course we’re concerned.”

Stephen is described as 5'11" of medium build with short fair hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing a hoodie and jeans. There are concerns for his well-being.

His brother Brian posted an image to social media of the missing man wearing a grey hoodie and dark jeans.

Gardaí in Henry Street Garda Station are investigating this incident and are seeking assistance from the public in establishing the location of Stephan. Any information to Henry Street Garda Station 061 212 400, any Garda Station or the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111.
