His family are particularly concerned, as he has had health problems recently.

Updated: Thursday, 3.15pm

GARDAÍ HAVE EXPRESSED concern for the well-being of Tom Kennedy, who has been missing from Finglas since Tuesday night.

The 81-year-old grandfather left his home in the Virginia Park area of Finglas in North Dublin on Tuesday evening at around 9pm, without bringing his mobile phone with him.

Kennedy’s family had earlier told TheJournal.ie that he had no plans to meet anyone that night, and it is entirely out of character for him not to return home.

They are particularly concerned for his well-being as he has had health problems recently.
