THE FAMILY OF missing pensioner Tommy Kennedy have issued a renewed appeal for help in finding him.

The 81-year-old has been missing from Virginia Park, Finglas, Dublin 11 since roughly 9.30pm on Tuesday night.

Volunteer teams have been searching the area in recent days, with a campaign to help find him gaining traction on social media.

The grandfather’s disappearance has been described as very out of character.

“Tommy is our granddad, he’s the most gentle, quiet man I know,” Ross Kennedy, grandson of Tommy, said.

We all just want him back home and safe. If anyone has seen Tommy or can be of any help please contact any Garda Station.

He is described as 5’3″ and with a slim build. He was last seen wearing:

  • White polo shirt with blue stripes
  • Dark trousers
  • Black velcro shoes
  • A watch
  • Glasses
  • Possibly a black raincoat

Gardaí launched an appeal for help, asking anyone who may have information to call Finglas Garda station on 01-666-7500, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.
