Fiona Sinnott's house

This is the house that Fiona Sinnott was renting when she went missing.

She was living in this rural cottage in Broadway, County Wexford, with her infant daughter, Emma, in the months leading up to her disappearance.

This is the last place that someone reported seeing her alive.

On February 8th, 1998, the 19-year-old spent her evening with friends at a nearby pub called Butler's. Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her child, Sean Carroll, sat at the bar by himself.

At around 12.10 a.m., Sinnott decided to call it a night and walk back to her house on Ballycushlane. As she was leaving the pub, her ex-boyfriend decided to follow her.

This was the last time she was seen in public.

According to Carroll, he walked her home, slept on the couch for the night, and then left the following morning.

Carroll told the gardaí that Sinnott had been experiencing pain in her arms and upper body and that she was planning on hitching a ride to a local doctor's office.

However, investigators found no evidence that she was hitchhiking or that she went anywhere that day. Furthermore, when they inspected the cottage, they discovered that it was "unusually" clean.

When the authorities appealed for information on her whereabouts, a number of tips were received from the public.

One person claimed that they heard a woman screaming in the area on the night in question, while another motorist stated that they had seen a couple arguing.

At one point, neighbors noticed that dozens of black refuse bags were lined up outside the cottage.

A local farmer also came forward and said that he found Sinnott's name and belongings in a black refuse bag in his field. However, at the time, he presumed that it was just another case of someone illegally dumping waste on his land. Consequently, he decided to burn the items.

In 2005, seven years after Sinnott went missing, the Irish authorities officially announced that they were treating her case as a murder investigation.

Both the gardaí and her family believe that she was killed by a person who was well known to her.

On the 25th anniversary of her disappearance, Sinnott's family publicly expressed doubt about her ex-boyfriend's claim that he had been invited to spend the night at the cottage. Carroll said that he slept on a couch in the living room. However, according to Sinnott's family, the couch in question was only three feet long. Furthermore, there was a spare bed in the house.

The house

This Google Street View image of the house was taken in September of 2019.

This is the first location that we entered into our location database. It was added on September 10th, 2021, which was the date that our website went live. We chose this as our first entry because it is a local case.

Before renting this cottage in Ballycushlane, Fiona lived in an apartment on George's Street in Wexford Town.

The Gardai have inspected this house on a number of occasions. In 2017, they conducted a fresh forensic examination of the property.

Fiona was an independent young woman who wanted to make her own way in life. Following her breakup with Carroll, she opted to live here by herself instead of moving back into her family home.

Although she remained in contact with her relatives, mobile phones were uncommon and social media didn't exist at the time. Furthermore, she did not own a car. This meant that days would often pass before she called, visited, or met up with them for lunch.

Sadly, this meant that ten days passed before her family realized that she had gone missing.

During this period, the house was seemingly cleaned out.

Fiona's father, Pat Sinnott, passed away in 2004 without ever finding out what happened to his daughter.

According to relatives, he used to wait by the gate of his house in the hope that she would return home.

On his deathbed, he implored his sons to find their sister.

On the night of her disappearance, Emma was staying with Sean Carroll's parents.

In the ten days that followed, the Carroll family did not contact anyone to say that Sinnott had failed to show up to collect her daughter.

Following her mother's disappearance, Emma was raised by Carroll's family.

When her ex-boyfriend, Sean Carroll, entered the pub, she seemed somewhat surprised by his arrival and did not greet him. Consequently, he spent most of the evening sitting at the bar by himself.
