Murder of Gerard Daly

Gerry Daly

Gardaí at Bailieboro Garda Station are investigating the murder of Gerard Daly, whose remains were found at Oristown Bog, Kells, Co. Meath on Thursday September 11th 2014.

Gerard was missing from his home at Cornaveagh, Bailieboro, Co. Cavan, since Sunday the 26th June 2011. He was formerly from Knockmore Grove in Tallaght and moved to the Bailieboro area in recent years. Gerard’s partner and her children were staying with him the weekend of his disappearance. She left at 6pm on Sunday the 26th of June 2011 and returned to her own home. On Monday the 27th of June Gerard’s partner attempted to contact him by phone. She then contacted a friend who called to Gerard’s home and discovered the house vacant with no sign of Gerard. Gerard’s partner was the last person to see him on Sunday evening, his routine would have included tending to his dogs which he kept at the house, one of the dogs was running loose and they had not been fed. The iron gates leading to the house were left open and the keys to the house were gone. Gerard’s wallet was still in his house and he did not collect his social welfare payment the following Tuesday the 28th.

Gardaí believe Gerard travelled to Oristown, Kells, Co. Meath with people known to him and are appealing to anyone with information about this investigation to come forward.
