Gardai To Launch Renewed Appeal In Missing Galway Woman Investigation

Gardai will today renew their appeal for information into the disappearance of a woman in Galway 36 years ago.

33-year-old Barbara Walsh vanished in Carna in Connemara on this day in 1985.
In the hours before the disappearance the mother of seven along with a group of about 12 people, including two gardai came back to the Walsh family home following a get together in the pub earlier.
Ms Walsh was last sighted at around 4am the following morning and hasn't been seen since.
A full review of the case was launched in January 2015. More than 100 lines of inquiry were generated and 66 people interviewed and a search of the lands around the Walsh's house did not provide any new evidence after a five-day dig.
Her family say that they believe there are still people alive with direct knowledge of what happened to her.
