Gardaí renew appeal for man on first anniversary of his disappearance

Barry Corcoran was last seen on the night of July 6th 2015

Gardaí are renewing their appeal for information on a 39-year-old man, on the first anniversary of his disappearance. 

Barry Corcoran left his home in Wicklow town on the morning of July 6th 2015 and went to the Post Office on Main Street.

He was in the Post Office at 9.35am for a few minutes, before taking the No. 133 bus from outside Flannery's Shop in Wicklow to Dublin City Centre.

It is believed he initially went to the Fitzgibbon Street area to visit a gym in order make contact with a friend of his.

He then travelled on the Luas red line out as far as the Kylemore stop on the Naas Road, arriving there in or around 2pm. Barry would not have been familiar with this area of the city but got directions from his friend and arranged to meet him at the Luas stop.

Barry made some purchases in a local shop on Kylemore Road at 2.30pm and again at 6.45pm.

He was visiting friends on Cremona Road, Ballyfermot on the evening of the July 6th 2015, where he was last sighted later that night.

Barry Corcoran’s family and friends have not heard from him since then and they are very concerned for his safety and well-being.

Barry is described as 5ft 11" in height and is of thin build. He has short grey hair and blue eyes.

He is described as walking with a slight ‘shuffle’ having injured his hip in an accident a number of years ago. He also has an old scar on the bridge of his nose.

When he was last seen he was wearing a dark rain jacket, blue jeans and black Puma runners.

Ballyfermot Gardaí are renewing their appeal today to anyone who may have seen or been in contact with him on Monday July 6th 2015 or at any time after that day.

They would also like to speak to anyone that has any information whatsoever that could assist in locating Mr. Corcoran.
