Murder Appeal of John Cunningham on the 4/11/05

Gardaí from Clondalkin are investigating the murder of John Cunningham who was 26 years old when he was seriously assaulted with a snooker cue and knife, by a group of men at the junction of the New Nangor Road and the Fonthill Road, Clondalkin on the 4 November 2005. John Cunningham later died in hospital on 6th November 2005 as a result of his injuries.  

John Cunningham was married to Mary and they had two children with a third child on the way.  

Gardaí have been investigating Johns murder since 2005 and over 200 witness statements have been taken to date. 


  • With advances in forensic science, Gardaí believe they are close to solving this case; but need the public’s help to ultimately do that. This murder featured on Crimecall in April 2006 and we got a great response. We are hoping for that again tonight and we are keen to speak to anyone with information in relation to this crime. 
  • It is hoped that people who may once have had loyalties that prevented them coming forward initially, can do so now due to a change in circumstances over the past 15 years. 
  • Gardaí are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who, at any time over the years, was confided in by those responsible for John’s death, or anyone who may have heard someone speaking about their involvement in the attack, even in a social setting.
