Gardai renew Rathfarnham murder appeal

Terenure Gardai have renewed an appeal for help relating to the murder of 42-year-old Liam Murray in March 2009.

Gardai say that both they and his family hope that this renewed appeal may jog the memory of people, and encourage them to come forward.

Liam was socialising at a bar on the junction between South Circular Road and Clonbrassil Street up to 6pm on St Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2009. He was later seen in the Terenure area.

His body was found three days later, at 10am on March 20, at his house at Rockbrook Cottages on the Edmonstown Road near Rockbrook School and close to the Mount Venus Cemetery.

“This has been an extensive investigation with in the region of 700 statements taken from witnesses, and door to door enquiries carried out. The matter is still being actively pursued by Gardai at Terenure.  There have been no arrests to date,” said Sergeant Tony Connaughton.

He said: “The location that Liam Murray was murdered is a reasonably isolated area and any unfamiliar persons or vehicles should have been noticed.  Also there is a pub nearby and again witnesses from here may have witnessed a suspicious vehicle or person. Gardaí have attempted to identify all persons/witnesses that were in the area at the time but there remains the possibility that there are more witnesses who have yet to come forward.”

Gardai are asking anybody who may have seen Liam or was around Rockbrook Cottages between the March 17-19  2009 to contact the incident room at Terenure Garda Station on 01 6666400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
