Gardaí are continuing to investigate the disappearance of twenty six year old American woman, Annie McCarrick who is missing since Friday 26th March 1993.  This investigation was upgraded to murder on Friday 23rd March 2023.

Annie travelled to Ireland to study and was living in an apartment at St. Cathryn’s Court, Sandymount, Dublin, with two other friends. On that Friday morning Annie spoke with both her flatmates who left to go home for the weekend.  She did some shopping at Quinnsworth and she left these groceries on the kitchen table of her home.  The last confirmed sighting of Annie was at AIB branch on Sandymount Road.  There have been  

other reported sightings of her at Sandymount Green, on the 44 bus from Ranelagh to Enniskerry and at Johnny Foxes Pub.

Annie was formally reported missing by her mother Nancy, who travelled to Ireland on 30th March 1993.

Annie was described as being 5’8” in height, 10 stone, long brown hair and she spoke with a soft Irish-American accent.  When Annie disappeared, it is believed she was in possession of a large brown leather bag.

Annie was the only child of John and Nancy McCarrick, Annie would have turned fifty six on 21st March this year. Annie’s father John has sadly passed away.

Garda Appeal

  • Annie McCarricks last confirmed sighting was at approximately 11am on Friday 26th March 1993 at the AIB on Sandymount Road.  Do you recall seeing Annie in the Sandymount area on that day? 
  • Gardaí wish to thank the members of the public who have come forward and assisted with this investigation so far, but as we are starting a new murder investigation, we are exploring all other possibilities into where Annie went that day. 
  • Gardaí would like to speak to anybody who has information on the disappearance of Annie McCarrick and her murder on or about the 26th of March 1993. 
  • Gardaí are appealing to anyone who has any information in relation to Annie’s disappearance and murder, who haven’t yet spoken to Gardaí, to come forward.  We would like to reassure anyone that while they may not have been in a position to tell Gardaí everything they knew, at the time, that their information will be treated sensitively.
