Gardaí have issued a renewed appeal for witnesses in relation to the murder of Paul Gallagher in Co Meath in 2014.

The twenty-six-year-old was shot and fatally wounded in a field at Ballymacan, Slane, Co Meath on Monday, July 28 in 2014.

A garda spokesperson said at approximately 10.30pm, Paul travelled to Ballymacan, Collon, Co Meath, in the company of a man.

“In Tullyallen village, prior to arriving at Ballymacan, they were joined by two other men,” the spokesperson said.

“Paul’s body was discovered in a field two days later and reported to An Garda Síochána. Mr Gallagher died from a number of gunshot wounds.”

An Garda Síochána made appeals for public information at the time and on Crimecall in September 2014.

A number of arrests have been made in relation to this investigation but to date no person has been charged with his murder.

Investigating Gardaí continue to appeal for information in this case and believe that a number of people have yet to come forward who may now be in a position to assist in bringing those responsible to justice.

The spokesperson added: “With the passage of time some person may now be in a position to provide information to investigating Gardaí that they could not provide at the time, or maybe some person who did provide information at the time may be now in a position to provide further information.”

Anyone with information can contact investigating Gardaí at Navan Garda Station 046 9036100, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
