Walsh, who was 33 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen at her home in Rusheenamanagh, Carna at on June 22, 1985.

A group of people had come back to her house after a social gathering at a local pub, and she was last seen in the early hours of the morning.

The case came to renewed attention in 2015 when then Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan ordered a review of the case following an appeal by Walsh’s family.

In a renewed bid for anyone who may have information on this missing persons case to come forward, Gardaí and the Walsh family will be holding a briefing on Tuesday morning in Carna.

At the media briefing taking place at 11am on Tuesday at Acadamh NUIGin Carna, Investigators will make an appeal for information, and a member of the Walsh family will make a statement.

Last year, Barbara’s daughter Catjerine Ui Chongaile made a personal appeal on the 35th anniversary of her disappearance, asking for anyone who may know something to contact Gardaí, so that their family can have closure.
