GARDAI have renewed their appeal for information regarding the murder of 17-year-old Raonaid Murray.

Today marks 15 years since the teen's death - her killer has never been found.

A full time incident room remains in situ at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station, and the Serious Crime Review Team at Garda HQ continues to provide assistance to the investigation team.

Raonaid Murray worked at a clothes shop then known as Sally West in Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre.

She left the shop at around 9pm on the 3rd of September 1999 and went with a friend to Scott’s Public House in Dun Laoghaire. S

he made arrangements with a friend to go to a night club later that night. 

She left the pub at around 11.20pm to go home and change before heading to the club.

Her house is about a 15 minute walk away from the pub.

Her body was then found at Silchester Crescent in Glenageary at 12.33am in the early hours of Saturday morning, less than 500 yards from her home.

Extensive lines of enquiries have been and continue to be pursued by the investigation team. 

Over 8,000 people have been interviewed as part of the investigation.

Gardai are again renewing their appeal for any information which may assist in their continued investigation.

Anyone who has any information which could assist in identifying a motive for the murder of Raonaid or if any person has any doubts about the veracity of an alibi provided, are asked to come forward.

Raonaid’s family also appeal to the public for any information which may lead to the arrest of her killer. 

The Gardai and Raonaid’s family implore anyone with information to contact the Garda Incident Room at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station, phone 01-6665032 / 6665012 or alternatively the Garda Confidential line at 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
