A YOUNG Co Cork woman who went missing at the Swedish House Mafia concert in the Phoenix Park has been found safe and well.

There was concern yesterday about the whereabouts of Aoife Finan (19) from Cobh, Co Cork, who had been last seen at about 11.30pm on Saturday.

She was due to return to Cork by bus but failed to meet friends at the scheduled time. Her parents, Sinéad and Eric Finan, had issued a public appeal for assistance in tracing their daughter.

Friends and family had become increasingly fearful for her safety after a bag containing some of her possessions, including her mobile phone, was found in the Phoenix Park by an Order of Malta worker on Sunday.

The teenager had contacted friends on another phone on Saturday night to say she was lost.

Shortly before 6.30pm yesterday she contacted her mother and told her she was on a bus to Cork from Dublin.
