Garda Appeal:

  • The investigation into Mark Noonan and Glen Murphy’s murder remains an active and open investigation, which is being co-ordinated from an incident room at Finglas Garda station. To date the investigation has developed many lines of enquiry and numerous statements have been taken. 
  • Gardaí would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their assistance to date. However Gardaí believe that there are individuals out there who, with a passage of time, may now feel ready to assist with the investigation. Gardaí would like to assure these people they will be treated with sensitivity and compassion. 
  • Garda believe that a BMW 5 series was used by the suspects. Did you see this car either before, during or since the murders? In addition to the known escape route taken to the M1 toll, Gardaí believe that this car was in the Warrenpoint area of Co. Down in the days prior to the murders. 
  • Do you know who the occupants of this car were on the night in question? Did you see the car or the suspects involved either before or after the murders? Are you in a position to offer that critical piece of information that will help the Noonan and Murphy families get closure? If so, please get in touch.
