The mother of Fiona Sinnot who went missing nearly two decades ago has told 3 News that it hasnt gotten any easier.
3 News Ireland will show extracts of an interview with Mary Sinnott, the mother of a young woman who has been missing for almost two decades. The extracts will run tonight on 3 News at 7pm and 10pm on be3.
Mary Sinnott believes that somebody knows what happened to her daughter and hopes that the passage of time will allow those with knowledge of what happened to come forward. Mary was speaking as part of a new appeal for information on the disappearance of her 19 year old daughter Fiona, in this month in 1998.
The 19 year old went missing near Rosslare Co Wexford. The youngest of five, she was a single mother living with her baby daughter Emma in a rented cottage in Ballycushlane. Her mother Mary says the last time she spoke to her daughter was just a few days before she vanished. Fiona had been telling her mum how she was planning to go to waterford to find a dress for her sister Diane's 21st birthday.
Now Diane celebrated her 40th birthday over the weekend and the Sinnott's are still without answers.
Speaking to 3 News’ Zara King, Mary Sinnott said her granddaughter’s birthday made the new appeal all the more poignant.
“She’s 20 now tomorrow. We’ll always remember her birthday, the day after Diane’s (Fiona’s sister)”
“I’m sure she would have loved to be at Diane’s birthday party on Saturday night. It’s terribly sad”
“It was all very sad, you know. No conclusion or anything like that”
Mary Sinnott firmly believes that somebody knows what happened to her daughter and hope the passage of time, will allow them to come forward.
“Sometimes I hope she’s still alive. I have my suspects as well”
