‘Nollaig na mBan was the 6th of January, also known as Women’s Christmas, and my mam went missing that next day.

‘I want to get people to think of that significant day. This beach was active that day. People walked by my mam with dogs, people walked before my mam.

‘I would appeal to anyone who maybe has photographs of the beach that day or any dashcam footage or maybe even CCTV, if they were in a house nearby.’
