Missing Person - Denis Walsh, who went missing in 1996

Denis Walsh

The Gardaí at Mayorstone Park Garda Station are re-appealing for information into the disappearance of twenty three year old Denis Walsh who went missing in 1996.

Denis Walsh lived at Caherdavin area of Limerick beyond Thomand Park.  On Saturday the 9th March 1996, he left his house to go into town and never returned. Denis would usually take the 302 bus into town and walk around for a few hours.  If he walked in, he would take the Shelbourne Road, Ennis Road, crossing at Sarsfield Bridge.

On the 13th May 1996, an appeal was made on Crimeline.  A call came in from a security manager working at the Seacat Ferry in Belfast.  He had seen the photograph of Denis on the programme, and thought he recognised him, as a man who had spent a day waiting for a ferry to the Isle of Man. 

When the security manager checked the next day, a ticket in the name of ‘Walsh’ had been cashed in, unused.

An age progression photograph was developed of what Denis he might look like now and circulated nationwide.

Gardaí at Henry Street Garda Station are investigating                                    Telephone 061 212400
