The late Michael Kennedy

The late Michael Kennedy It is with great sadness and deep regret that we have learned this morning of the passing of our friend and colleague Michael Kennedy. Michael had recently retired from An Garda Siochana where he spent many years working in the Missing Persons Unit. His knowledge and links were extensive and we were privileged to welcome him onto our Board of Directors. During his time as a Garda, Mick’s commitment to his work in Missing Persons went far and above his normal duties. He was available to our Helpline at all times and frequently assisted us deal with crisis situations at night and over weekends. Michael had that rare gift, a sense of humanity and was deeply committed to helping all who were affected by a missing friend or loved one. His passing is a great loss and he will be missed by all of us at the Missing Persons Helpline. Our thoughts are also with his ex Garda colleagues who are devastated by the sad news. To his wife, daughter and family we offer our deepest condolences and sympathies. Rest in peace Mick.......

Nancy Shanahan

It is with great sadness and regret that we have learned of the death of Nancy Shanahan, Limerick. Nancy was the mother of Gussie Shanahan who disappeared in Limerick 16 years ago and has passed away without ever learning what happened to her beloved son. Our deepest condolences go to Bob and the Shanahan family and we hope that they can find the inner strength to carry on with their search for Gussie following Nancy’s passing. We would again appeal to anybody who has information on Gussie’s whereabouts to come forward either to the Garda Confidential line 1800 666 111 or the Missing Persons Helpline 1890 442 552. Rest in peace Nancy.
