We have laid him to rest, but we still want answers as to what happened to Gussie.”Ms Shanahan appealed directly to people who have information about her brother’s disappearance for anyone with information about the death to let them know what happened.She particularly appealed to a man who contacted her father Bob Shanahan years previously with possible information about the case.“The man rang my Dad and said that Gussie had been in the wrong place at the wrong time. We’d like to hear from that man again, and anyone that knows what happened on the night Gussie disappeared.”A poster released by the Shanahan family reads: “JUSTICE FOR GUSSIE…So many Unanswered Questions??? Did He Suffer? Was He Alone? We Need Your Help…Help us get the answers.”Ms Shanahan said any information given to the family would be treated in “strict confidence”.Gussie’s bone fragments were laid to rest beside his late mother Nancy last November following his funeral mass.Bob Shanahan, speaking prior to the funeral, said hearing confirmation from Gardaí that the bone fragments found 17 years earlier belonged to his missing son, was like being “struck by a thunderbolt”.The investigation team at Roxboro Road Garda Station can be contacted at 061-214340 or on the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111.by David [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Population of Mid West region increased by more than 3,000 in past year Advertisement Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Limerick on Covid watch list Previous articleThere’s still a job to be done on the right to workNext articleLimerick FC players vote in favour of strike action Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin Twitter
ANDREW SCHORR/Herald photoAfter an intense home series against No. 2 Minnesota, the top-ranked Wisconsin women’s hockey team is hosting yet another top ranked team, as No. 7 Minnesota-Duluth heads to Madison this weekend. Duluth beat Wisconsin in the National Championship last season, denying the Badgers’ aspirations for a third straight national championship.Minnesota-Duluth dropped a pair of games to the Gophers earlier this year. The Bulldogs are coming off a series sweep over Minnesota State Mankato. Duluth pocketed a pair of 5-1 victories over the Mavericks in Duluth last weekend. The wins over Mankato gave the Bulldogs their first WCHA wins of the season and a good deal of momentum heading into Madison for a visit with the top-ranked Badgers.The Bulldogs’ lineup against Mankato was rejuvenated with the emergence of freshman Elim Holmlov. Holmlov, a Sweden native who has only played in three of Duluth’s 11 games, notched four goals in the sweep.Pernilla Winberg, also a freshman Swede, was voted the WCHA preseason rookie of the year. Winberg has lived up to the reputation thus far, as she leads the Bulldogs with 10 points. With a healthy lineup and a WCHA sweep under their belts, the Badgers can expect a much-improved Duluth team this weekend.Forward Haley Irwin, a preseason first team all-WCHA member, and goalie Kim Martin, who along with Badgers Erica Lawler and Meghan Duggan received votes for WCHA preseason player of the year, round out a group with plenty of big game experience for the Bulldogs. Despite the experience, the Bulldogs are a relatively young team; they have 11 underclassmen and only five seniors.Duluth’s roster features 14 international players coming in from all over the globe to play for coach Shannon Miller. The roster includes eight Canadians from Quebec to New Brunswick. In addition, a strong European influence has been introduced to the Bulldogs’ style of play thanks largely to the Bulldogs’ four Swedish and two Finnish players.The Minnesota series was the first in which the Badgers found themselves facing an offense with as much explosiveness as their own. Wisconsin stepped up defensively, holding the Gophers to only two goals on 62 shots. Senior goalie Jessie Vetter earned the WCHA defensive player of the week for her performance; Holmlov of Duluth won the WCHA offensive player of the week.The Bulldogs will bring a more balanced and less offensive attack to the Kohl Center than the Gophers provided last week. Sophomore Kelly Nash likes the Badgers’ chances in the series against the Bulldogs.“It definitely is going to be an intense series; I think that our team is much more prepared than we were last season. We have been playing pretty well,” Nash said.Despite the Bulldogs’ talented roster and past success, it is Wisconsin that comes into the series as the favorites. The Badgers have cruised to 9-0-1 start and are coming off a big weekend against arch-rival Minnesota. The Badgers’ comeback victory on Saturday over a very talented Minnesota provides plenty of momentum for round two of the Badger’s difficult two-week home stretch.Assistant coach Tracey Cornell mentioned that the Wisconsin coaching staff has been keeping an eye on Duluth and many of the players are familiar with the Duluth players.“[Minnesota-Duluth] always is much-anticipated competition. We track them through video, and the players are familiar with Duluth’s players. It’s just another great WCHA series,” Cornell said.
