Four days after Bernard ‘Bunny’ Kirwan, (52), was last seen leaving a licensed premises in Enniscorthy, no progress has been reported in locating the missing Sean Browne Court man despite intensive searches in the Enniscorthy area.
Gardaí have renewed an appeal on behalf of Bernard’s family for landowners in the Brownswood and Edermine districts to search their lands as a matter of urgency.
Slaney Search & Rescue have been conducting daily search duty on the River Slaney with two boats between the Enniscorthy Promenade and Edermine Bridge without making any discovery so far. The Coastguard helicopter R117 took part in a detailed aerial search on Tuesday afternoon.
Friends of the family and many volunteers have joined forces in the search for Bernard and they are determined not to give up until Bernard is found.
Bernard Kirwan was last seen at Templeshannon around 4 am on Sunday morning. CCTV records him walking down the Quay. He doesn’t appear to have crossed Rafter Bridge but continued down the N11 Wexford road towards the new Enniscorthy Business and Technology Park. What happened next appears to be a complete mystery!
He was wearing a Diesel polo shirt, navy pants, dark coloured jacket and a flat cap. Bernard is 6 feet in height with short grey hair with tattoos on both his arms.
Anybody who may have travelled the Wexford road N11 between Wexford and Enniscorthy on Sunday morning between 4 am and 6 am, particularly those with dashcam footage of Bernard, are asked to contact Enniscorthy Garda Station on 053 9442580 or at any Garda Station.
