AN RTE programme has reiterated an appeal for witnesses to murder of Irene White, who was brutally killed in her home in 2005.

According to the ‘Cracking Crime’ programme which aired this week, Gardaí are crucially seeking three people who were seen in the area of the Ice House on the day of Irene’s murder.

Irene White was stabbed to death in her kitchen in one of the country’s most brutal murders, yet no one has yet been brought to justice for the gruesome crime.

Gardaí from the Serious Crime Review Team, otherwise known as the ‘Cold Case Unit’, say of the 60 joggers and walkers in the area on the morning of 6 April 2005, three remain unaccounted for.

The first is described as a male between 5’5 and 5’8, wearing a three quarter length green jacket, who was seen walking towards the Ice House from the O’Hanlon Park end of the park at approximately 9.25am.

The second is described as a male wearing a grey hoodie who was seen walking in the direction of the O’Hanlon Park at approximately 10.10am, approximately 20 minutes after the estimated time of Irene’s murder.

The third is described as a male between 30 and 40, who was wearing a waist length jacket and possibly a baseball cap, who was running away from the Ice House through the park, before jumping into a dark coloured car.

Gardaí say they wish to either implicate or eliminate people from their investigation.

A €34,000 reward is still in the offing for anyway who provides information that sees the successful prosecution of the people behind the murder.

Detectives investigating the case and Irene’s sister, Anne Delcassion, say they believe that a someone with information regarding the murder will eventually come forward. It is hoped that those know the people behind the vicious killing will eventually come forward with information.

Anyone who comes forward with information will be treated in the strictest confidence said a Garda spokesperson during the half hour long programme.
