Gardaí at Dungarvan Garda Station are investigating the fatal hit and run collision involving twenty three year old Joseph (Joey) Moroney on the 8th August 1982.  On the weekend of the 7/ August, Joey, attended a festival organised by Kilgobnet GAA Club.  After the festival he went to Meades Pub.  He left there on foot around between 12 midnight and 1am and was later found deceased on the side of the road in Bohadoon South.  Some items of car debris were discovered at the scene.  The post mortem found that he had died from injuries consistent with being hit by a car. 

Garda Appeal:

  • - Investigating Gardai at Dungarvan are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Joey Moroney on the 8 August 1982 and are endeavouring to establish what happened on the night of his death?
  • - Where you present at Meade’s pub in Bohadoon or did you speak with Joey Moroney that night?
  • - Gardai are appealing to any garage or panel beaters who may have repaired a vehicle in the days after the collision to come forward?
  • - Did you travel in or around the Bohadoon area on the night of the incident?
  • - Do you have information that may assist the investigation team? You will be dealt with in a sensitive manner. It is understandable that after forty years you may be in a different place in your life, you may have been young at the time of the incident, relationships you held back then may have changed over time or it may be that your own family circumstances have changed.
  • - This incident happened over forty years ago and the key to solving this tragic incident lies within the local community and it is hoped that closure can be finally given to the Moroney family who are still at a loss of their sibling Joey Moroney.
