Missing Caitriona is spotted in hostel
GARDAI are focusing their search for missing Trinity student Caitriona Horan in the south west after an alleged sighting.
The search for the talented musician has shifted to Clare after she was spotted in a hostel in Ennis.
Caitriona Horan (22) was last seen by a friend outside Trinity college in Dublin last Wednesday evening.
Last night, the senior garda leading the search appealed to traditional Irish musicians to be on the lookout for her.
The appeal came after it emerged that the Trinity College Law graduate had spent Saturday night in a hostel in Ennis Town Centre.
Yesterday, Caitriona's sister, Sinead travelled to the Co. Clare town to pick up the trail.
Staff at the Rowan Tree Hostel only realised her identity after seeing pictures of the missing woman in yesterday's papers but she had checked out on Sunday night.
The alarm had been raised after Caitriona failed to turn up at her sister's house in Dublin on Wednesday night.
Gardai know that she texted her mother on Thursday and asked to be left alone.
