No peace for Lynskey family

I REMEMBER working in Rathfarnham as a young guard in 1971, when Una Lynskey's body was found in the Dublin Mountains.

It was a shocking case, and even after four decades it has still stayed with me.

The 19-year-old was apparently abducted, but there was no official cause of death. It remains a bizarre and unusual case. One suspect was killed. Two other men were convicted, but both have now been cleared on appeal -- most recently Martin Conmey this week.

The Lynskey family have never achieved justice. This case is now one that should be examined by the Garda Serious Crime Review Team.
