Information sought on woman's death


GARDAI investigating the death of Mrs Miriam O'Donoghue last night renewed their appeal for assistance from commuters travelling to or from the Hartstown area in Co Dublin during the weekend of her death.

Mrs O'Donoghue's body was found by her husband, Paul, at her home in Aisling Gardens Mulhuddart, last Sunday at 8.20 p.m. and the precise time of her death has yet to be established by gardai.

A team of 60 detectives is investigating her death and has appealed for help from anyone in the Hartstown area between 9 p.m. on January 24th and 8.20 pm. on January 26th. The investigation has so far failed to yield a definite line of inquiry.

The 42 year old mother of two, who was estranged from her husband, was buried following a funeral at Our Lady's Church, Navan Road, Dublin, on Friday.

A post mortem has established that she died from asphyxiation consistent with "a blow to the throat".

Anyone with information should contact the incident room at Cabra Garda station in confidence on 01 838 9556.
