November will mark the twenty fifth anniversary of the disappearance of Jo Jo Dollard.

Gardaí have issued a renewed appeal for information about the murder of Josephine “Jo Jo” Dullard on the 25th anniversary of her disappearance. 

Last month investigators upgraded the investigation to a murder inquiry and they continue to appeal for information.

Jo Jo Dullard who was 21, was last seen on November 9 1995, as she tried to make her way back to Callan from Dublin. where she had been enjoying a night out.

She took the only bus available, which was going to Naas in Co Kildare, and from there hitched two lifts and ended up in Moone.

She rang a friend in a phonebox to tell her what was going on and then said a car had stopped for her.

Nobody has seen or heard from her since.

Subject to an ongoing review, gardai are satisfied that serious harm came to Jo Jo on or about the night of 9th November 1995 and the investigation is now classified as a murder investigation.

No person has been brought to justice for the murder of "Jo Jo” at this time.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone that met, saw, or has any information in relation to the murder of Jo Jo after 11.37pm on the night of the 9th November 1995 who has not spoken to officers to please come forward.
