Speaking at Malahide Garda Station, Superintendent Gerry Donnelly said: Gardaí are anxious to hear from any witnesses who may have been in the vicinity of the entrance to Portmarnock Beach, Velvet Strand, Coast Road and Wendell Avenue between 9pm and 10pm, or anyone with camera footage that could assist the investigation. Gardaí are also appealing to any persons who may have been using public transport in that vicinity and came across large groups of youths availing of transport services."
