Renewed appeals for information on the murder of teenager Raonaid Murray marked the 17th anniversary of her death.

The appeals were made both by gardai and her family as the murder of the 17-year-old girl remains unsolved. She was stabbed to death as she walked home on September 3, 1999.

Gardai re-released the timeline of the night of Raonaid's murder and asked people to share any information they may have. "You may be unknowingly shielding a killer," they said.

Gardai declared they were committed to catching Raonaid's killer and a full-time incident room remains in operation at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station.

Raonaid worked at a clothes shop then known as Sally West in Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre. She went with a friend to Scott's Pub in Dun Laoghaire at 9pm.


She made arrangements with a friend to go to a nightclub later that night and left Scott's at 11.20pm to go home and change her clothes. Her body was found at Silchester Crescent in Glenageary at 12.33am, less than 500 yards from her home.

Gardai have spoken to many of Raonaid's friends.

"Anybody with 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, we would appeal for your immediate assistance," they said.

Gardai said information received will be treated with "absolute confidentiality" and a reward was available.

The Gardai and Raonaid's family implored anyone with information to contact the Garda Incident Room on 01-6665012 or the Garda Confidential line at 1800 666 111.
