Appeal over death of Limerick man 21 years ago.

Crimestoppers are appealing for information on the dealth of Limerick man Henry Hurley in 1989.

Today marks the 21st anniversary of Mr Hurley's murder.

Gardaí will later be handing out leaflets at Sarsfield road in the city seeking information from the public.

Mr Hurley,who was 32 years of age at the time of his death, was a well known and popular Limerick city taxi driver. He died a violent death at Reaskcamoge, Sixmilebridge, Co Clare. He was last seen alive at approximately 3am on July 7, 1989 between Setrights Cross and Gallows Hill in his white Nissan taxi. He was accompanied by two men.

Gardai at Ennis, supported by the Serious Crime Review Team at the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation, are investigating the murder.

Superintendent John Scanlon is seeking the assistance of the public in identifying these two men: “maybe someone saw these men being picked up in Limerick city by Henry on the night. Or maybe these were not from the area and were staying in the Cratloe/Sixmilebridge area at the time”.

“I am appealing to anybody who might have any information that would help us with our inquiry to come forward to Crimestoppers now”.

Crimestoppers can be called free and anonymously on 1800 25 00 25. Calls to Crimestoppers are dealt with in the strictest of confidence. Callers do not need to leave their name or address.
