Despite the investigation that has been carried out, this vehicle or driver have not been located to date.

Local gardai are seeking further assistance in locating the vehicle and driver involved.

In their appeal gardai have said that In 11 year’s loyalties, friendships and relationships change and perhaps someone that felt unable to come forward before is now in a position to provide the investigation team with the vital information that would locate the vehicle and driver.
