Investigating gardaí are asking the woman or anyone who may have information to contact them at Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 6669000, to call the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666111 or to contact any Garda station.

The area would have been relatively busy at the time, as people made their way home from Friday Christmas parties.
