Fiona Sinnott's house.

This is the house that 19-year-old Wexford woman Fiona Sinnott was renting when she went missing. She lived in this rural house with her 11-month-old daughter up until her disappearance on February 8th, 1998.

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

After having drinks in a pub called Butler's in Broadway, Fiona and Sean Carroll walked 2km back to this house in Ballyhitt. Carroll was the father of her child. However, the couple were no longer together.

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

Carroll told Gardai that Fiona was complaining of pains in her arms and upper body. He also stated that she planned on hitching a lift to a GP.

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

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

- At one stage, dozens of black refuse bags were seen lined up outside the cottage.

- Someone heard a woman screaming on the night in question.

- A motorist saw a couple arguing in the area.

A local farmer also came forward and said that he found Fiona's name and belongings in a black refuse bag in his field. However, at the time, he thought that it was just another case of someone illegally dumping rubbish. Consequently, he burned the items.

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

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