by Padraig Conlon

Crimestoppers is today launching an appeal for information in relation to the murder of Patrick Sullivan who was shot in April 2013.

On Saturday April 13th  2013, Mr. Sullivan was shot by a masked intruder who entered his home at Rowlagh Park, Clondalkin.

Mr. Sullivan sustained serious injuries and never regained consciousness. He died in hospital in June 2018.

Gardai believe the shooting of Patrick Sullivan was a case of mistaken identity.

Crimestoppers and the Gardai are asking for people who know anything of relevance to this case to contact them.

Speaking today, Superintendent Paul Dolan, Lucan Garda Station, said: “We are appealing to the public to come forward with any information relevant to the murder of Patrick Sullivan.

“Mr Sullivan was a hard-working, family man who was not involved in criminality and we believe he was shot in a case of mistaken identity.

“At the time of the shooting, the local community provided vital information to Gardaí. We are now appealing to any members of the community who have yet to come forward to please do so.

“Any information you may have either on the incident or those involved can play a crucial role in our investigation.

“I urge anyone with even the smallest piece of information which may seem insignificant to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.

Crimestoppers Chairman John Murphy commented: “Members of the public can call Crimestoppers with potentially valuable information about any crime without leaving their name or personal details.

“The ability to give information anonymously can be an important incentive and could help solve a case and secure a conviction. 

“I would appeal to anyone with any information in relation to this case to get in contact.”

Calls to Crimestoppers are completely anonymous and callers do not need to leave their name or address.

Anybody with information can call Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.
