Gardaí have renewed their appeal for information on the disappearance and murder of Antoinette Smith.

The 27-year-old was abducted and killed after attending a David Bowie concert in Slane, Co Meath.

She was last seen in the Westmorland Street, O’Connell Street area on July 12, 1987. Her body was found nine months later at Glendoo Mountain, Co Wicklow.

Antoinette’s daughters, Lisa and Rachel, have continued to seek answers surrounding their mother’s disappearance and death.

They believe that she knew her attacker and are urging anybody with information to come forward.

They were seven and three-years-old at the time of the murder.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information, or who may have come into possession of information in the intervening years, to assist with the investigation.

Those with information are asked to contact Bray Garda Station on 01 6665300, Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
