Murder of Irene White on the 6/4/05

Irene White

Gardaí at Dundalk Garda Station are appealing for information in relation to the murder of forty three year old Irene White who was fatally stabbed in her home on the 6th April 2005.

Irene, who was a mother of three children, had just returned home to her house known locally as “Ice House”, beside Ice House Hill Park. Irene was in the kitchen cleaning up the delph and cutlery after breakfast that morning.

At 12.30pm, Irene’s mother at the rear of the property discovered Irene’s body in the kitchen. She had been stabbed a number of times.

Gardaí believe that a man entered the kitchen and fatally stabbed Irene and fled over the back wall into Ice House Hill Park. There are four possible exits the man could have taken from the Park. Gardaí are appealing to anyone who was in the park on the morning of the 6th April 2005 to come forward if they have not already done so. Gardaí would like to speak to cyclist, walkers, families & joggers who were in the Park that morning.

Irene’s daughter, Jennifer, now twenty eights makes an emotional appeal on the programme for answers and justice for her mother.
