Missing Gorey girls found safe and well

By Dan Walsh

The search for two missing Gorey girls, Rachel Walsh-Wolahan and Sinead Doran, has ended successfully with both girls found safe and well.

The Walsh and Doran families are thankful to the Gardaí and the public who responded on social media.

“The response from the public was absolutely outstanding and within minutes there was a groundswell of people looking and helping us. At the same time the Gardaí in Gorey were pulling out all the stops. There have been over 11,000 shares of our request for help.


“The Garda search moved from Gorey to Howth where Gardaí from Raheny spent many hours searching Howth Hill in the dark and successfully found the two girls in the early hours of this morning.

“The successful result was down to the unbelievable help and support which we received from the public and the utmost professionalism and determination by the members of Gorey and Raheny Gardaí to find the girls.”

“They are now both safe and a double tragedy has been averted. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you all for your help from the people who just pressed the share button and the many people who went out searching. Thank you all so much,” said a statement posted on social media.
